What is Polycarbonate?
A polycarbonate is a synthetic resin in which the polymer units are linked through carbonate groups. Polycarbonates can easily be moulded and are used to make lightweight alternatives to glass such as bicycle helmets, microwave cookware and bullet proof windows. Polycarbonates are strong, lightweight and heat resistant.
One main advantage of polycarbonate is its unbeatable strength combined with light weight. While acrylic is 17% stronger than glass, polycarbonate is nearly unbreakable, added to this advantage polycarbonate is just one-third the weight of acrylic, or one-sixth as heavy as glass.
The second largest consumer of polycarbonates worldwide is the construction industry.
