Polycarbonate (PC) offers extremely high impact strength with moderate chemical resistance. It is super tough and virtually unbreakable. PC can be used in direct contact with food and has a long term service temperature of -60°C to +120°C. Our polycarbonate range covers both structural & engineering grades in rod, tube & sheet from quality European & American manufacturers.
3mm to 250mm OD
6mm ID to 100mm OD
1mm to 100mm Thick
Transparent, white & various tints
Structural PC grades are available in sheet form or round & square tube section. Structural grades tend to be used for machine guards, shatter proof windows, signage & sight glasses, with sheeting available in a range of colour tints & additives to provide UV stability etc. Engineering grades are used for precision mechanical engineering applications or where electrical insulation is required for electrical engineering.
Structural sheeting can have colorants included to change the visual appearance of the sheet or additives to increase UV stability, heat resistance or heat diffusion properties. Engineering grades can be modified with the inclusion of 30% glass fibre which increase strength, rigidity, creep resistance & dimensional stability making it suitable for parts exposed to high static loads over long periods. Abrasion resistance can also be increased with coatings.
Structural sheet & tube grades are commonly used for sight glasses, machine guards, safety windows or applications requiring a clear shatter proof material. Engineering grades are used for precision parts such as electrical insulators, connectors, terminal blocks, distributor blocks, impellers & housings, fluid containers to name a few.
