POLYCARBONATE

WHAT IS PC ?

Polycarbonate (PC) is a high-performance tough, amorphous and transparent thermoplastic polymer which has an organic functional groups linked together by carbonate groups (–O–(C=O)–O–) and offers a unique combination of properties. It is used as an engineering plastics thanks to its:

  • High impact strength
  • High dimensional stability
  • Good electrical properties, amongst several others

APPLICATION OF PC ?

Some of the common applications are:

  • compact disc,
  • Safety helmets,
  • Bullet-proof glass,
  • Car headlamp lenses,
  • Baby feeding bottles,
  • Roofing and glazing etc.

The polymer shows excellent mechanical properties (Density: 1.2 – 1.22 g/cm3), maintains toughness upto 140°C and down to -20°C. The characteristics of polycarbonate are quite like those of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA, acrylic), but polycarbonate is stronger, usable in a wider temperature range (Melting point: 155°C) but more expensive. PC shows excellent compatibility with certain polymers. Therefore, it is widely used in blends such as PC/ABS, PC/ PET, PC/PMMA…
