Polycarbonate Machine Grade

Machine grade polycarbonate is a transparent amorphous thermoplastic, which offers very high impact strength and high modulus of elasticity. These properties, in addition to good electrical insulating and dielectric properties make it an excellent choice for electrical/electronic applications. Its strength, impact resistance and transparency also make it an ideal material for certain transparent structural applications such as sight glasses and windows. Polycarbonante can be supplied up to 50mm thick in sheet/plate or 200mm diameter rod making it an ideal product for machining bespoke components requiring similar properties to that of normal Polycarbonate sheet.


The plastic polycarbonate is characterised by high strength, rigidity and hardness, as well as good impact strength. In contrast to their low chemical resistance, polycarbonates are very resistant to external influences such as weather and UV radiation.
