Polycarbonate or the polycarbonate of bisphenol A is a plastic used in several applications. These polycarbonate sheets are very clear they are almost comparable to glass. The material is also highly impact-resistant. This means it can withstand wear, pressure and damage even better than acrylic sheet plastic. Overall, it is known to be light, long lasting, energy efficient and easy to assemble.

 

Applications:

Architecture – Polycarbonate is the perfect industrial material because of the qualities and properties it possesses – high-impact strength, transparent, UV resistant, high thermal performance and excellent light transmission. These sheets are everywhere. The long list includes roofs, walls, facades, storefronts, walkways, displays, machine guards and a whole lot more.

Electronic components – This material is also trusted in electrical and telecommunications hardware. This is due to its capacity to insulate electricity. Insulators protect workers from the dangerous effects of electricity flowing through conductors. It also helps that they are very resistant to heat and has flame-retardant properties.

Data storage – Another major application is in data storage. It is a component injected into a mould cavity to produce compact discs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs.

Personal protective equipment – As established earlier, polycarbonate has so many properties that would be suitable for safety gears. It is normally used for eye protection and other projectile-resistant viewing and lighting applications. Automotive headlamp lenses, lighting lenses, sunglass/eyeglass lenses and swimming goggles are also products of this plastic.

Advertising – The material is also employed as a cover for signs, displays and posters. It protects the marketing paraphernalia from the outside conditions that can ruin the promotion.
