Polycarbonate plastic, often referred to by the abbreviation PC, is an amorphous thermoplastic with good electrical properties combined with superior impact strength and moderate chemical resistance. Polycarbonate is a very versatile material choice for a large number of applications. Whilst PC has a low moisture absorption, it isn’t suitable for use in humid environments where the temperature exceeds 70°C, where hydrolysis causes a significant deterioration of the mechanical properties and impact resistance.
- Low moisture absorption till temperature of 70°C
- Impact resistance
- Moderate chemical resistance (low solvent resistance)
- Good Machinability
- Excellent dimensional stability
- Rigidity over a wide range of temperatures
