Polycarbonate (PC)

Polycarbonates (PC) are a group of thermoplastic polymers containing carbonate groups in their chemical structures. Polycarbonates used in engineering are strong, tough materials, and some grades are optically transparent. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates find many applications. Polycarbonate (PC) is a clear, colorless polymer used extensively for engineering and optical applications. It is available commercially in both pellet and sheet form. Outstanding properties include impact strength and scratch resistance. The most serious deficiencies are poor weatherability and chemical resistance.
