Plastics Profiler-Polycarbonate

Newsletter, Plastics Profiler

Polycarbonate resins are amorphous thermoplastic polymers based on bisphenol A. Polycarbonate is noted for the following performance characteristics:

  • High Impact Strength
  • Dimensional Stability
  • Heat Resistance
  • Memory
  • Clarity

A major drawback of polycarbonate is its susceptibility to chemical attack in certain end use environments.  Avoid using PC in environments with methyl alcohol, acetone, ketones, ethers, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons, aqueous or alcoholic alkaline solutions, or ammonia gas.

AGS Technology injection molds cost effective recycled polycarbonate grades into clips, brackets, substrates, housings, bezels, and many other applications.  To reference the product data sheet click on Injectoblend™ FPC120.
