Polycarbonate, also referred to as PC, is a tough, impact-resistant, virtually unbreakable material used in a wide variety of applications.


Polycarbonate is an amorphous thermoplastic material, with a continuous use temperature range of up to 265° F (129° C). LEXAN™ is one of the most commonly recognized polycarbonate brands. Polymershapes is the leading North American distributor of LEXAN. LEXAN sheet comes in a variety of textures and surface patterns for purposes ranging from light diffusion to privacy, to printing. It can be cut, routed, drilled, and milled. Graphics can be direct printed or laminated.
Polycarbonate sheet is commonly used in see-through applications, such as machine guards, windows (glazing), windshields for golf carts and other recreational vehicles, and point-of-purchase displays. Polycarbonate is 20 times stronger than acrylic and retains its physical properties over a greater range of temperatures. Polycarbonate sheet is an outstanding replacement choice for glass, with over 200 times the strength.
