Polycarbonates, known by the trademarked names Lexan is approximately 250 times stronger than plate glass and thirty times stronger than acrylic of equal thickness.

Barnegat, NJ - March 05, 2010 -- Polycarbonates, known by the trademarked names Lexan, Makrolon, and others, are a particular group of thermoplastic polymers. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. As a result of these properties, polycarbonates discover many applications. Polycarbonates don't have a unique plastic identification code and are identified as other, 7.

Polycarbonate is the majority of impact-resistant clear sheet available today. Virtually unbreakable, it's approximately 250 times stronger than plate glass and thirty times stronger than acrylic of equal thickness. Polycarbonate static dissipative sheet provides lasting protection against vandalism, burglary, and natural occurrences, such as high winds, snowfall loads, and hailstorms. It is unlikely to snap, shatter, or chip when bombarded with thrown objects, such as rocks, bricks and bottles, nor is it likely that these materials will break when hammered, garbled, or bent.

Because of its ductility, polycarbonate double glazed can be cured and cold-formed on site from flat sheet into much tighter figures than is possible with acrylic. This gives the freedom to construct curved architectural glazing during installation without the pre-forming and fabrication expenses associated with glass and acrylic.

Polycarbonate static dissipative sheet(http://www.emcoplastics.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&product_ID=145&ParentCat=26) is a superior insulating material when compared to equivalent thicknesses associated with glass. Double-glazing or over-glazing on existing windows can provide significant energy cost savings. Polycarbonate static dissipative sheet(http://www.emcoplastics.com/) transmits up to 88% of visible light-close to that of glass. In applications requiring reduced light transmittance and increased shading, regular polycarbonate sheet is available in solar gray and bronze tints. Privacy patterns are also available for increased visual security.

Polycarbonate derived from BPA is a very durable material. Although it has high impact-resistance, it has low scratch-resistance and so a hard coating is applied to polycarbonate eyewear lenses and polycarbonate exterior automotive components. The characteristics associated with polycarbonate are quite like those of polymethyl methacrylate, but polycarbonate is stronger, usable in a wider heat range but more expensive. This polymer is highly transparent to visible light and has better gentle transmission characteristics than many kinds of glass.

Unlike most thermoplastics,polycarbonate static dissipative sheet(http://www.plasticmachinings.com) can undergo large plastic deformations without cracking or breaking. As a result, it can be processed and formed at room temperature using sheet metal techniques, such as forming bends on a brake. Actually for sharp angle bends with a tight radius, no heating is generally necessary. This will make it valuable in prototyping applications where clear or electrically non-conductive parts are needed, which cannot be created from sheet metal.
