What is glass-filled polycarbonate?
Glass-filled polycarbonates including sterilization options feature properties which are suitable for use in parts that are exposed to high static loads over long periods in high temperature conditions. The addition of glass reinforcement boosts material properties in terms of stiffness and strength.
What is the difference between Lexan and polycarbonate?
Yes, they are the same thing. Lexan™ is actually a brand name of polycarbonate manufactured by Sabic Innovative Plastic. We offer both Lexan™ and Makrolon® brand polycarbonate sheet. Description: Brands of polycarbonate sheet that we offer.
What is reinforced polycarbonate?
Glass-reinforced polycarbonate is used in many industrial applications where metals, particularly die-cast aluminum and zinc, are commonly used. While glass-reinforced has less impact strength than standard grades, it is still tougher and more impact resistant than most other plastics and die-cast aluminum.
Who makes Makrolon?
Makrolon® | Polycarbonate by Covestro | Covestro AG.
How is polycarbonate produced?
Polycarbonate is produced via chemical reactions between bisphenol A (BPA) and phosgene COCl2. It was first patented in 1953 by Hermann Schnell at Bayer under the name Melron (later changed to Makloron). Today, polycarbonate is made in a similar way through either injection moulding or extrusion.
How is glass filled nylon made?
Glass-filled nylon is created by adding powdered glass to the nylon resin or by extruding the plastic with glass fibers. The resulting material has some very useful properties: It has a stiffness that is up to 80 percent greater than standard nylon.
What is PC glass?
What is PC, and What is it Used For? Polycarbonate (PC) plastics are a naturally transparent amorphous thermoplastic. Polycarbonate polymers are used to produce a variety of materials and are particularly useful when impact resistance and/or transparency are a product requirement (e.g. in bullet-proof glass).

What is the price of polycarbonate?
For general purpose, grades of polycarbonate in February prices were around $1.60 – $1.90 per pound.
Is Makrolon the same as polycarbonate?
Makrolon® (formerly Hyzod®) is a trade name for Covestro (formerly Bayer MaterialSciences). These materials are all Polycarbonate which is a very tough, high impact plastic material. The base resins are very similar, however, the end product varies quite a bit depending on the manufacturer.
What is Makrolon made of?
Polycarbonate (Tuffak® / Makrolon® / Lexan®) is a transparent thermoplastic sheet material used where impact resistance, flame retardancy, good dielectric properties and optical clarity are priorities. Polycarbonate thermoforms well, is easy to paint and bonds well using solvents and adhesives.
Glass-Filled Polycarbonate– This glass-reinforced polycarbonate is used in many industrial applications where metals are commonly used. The addition of glass fibers provide improved strength and stiffness and lower the thermal expansion.
What special properties can be manufactured into polycarbonate films?
Additional special properties that can be manufactured into polycarbonate films include: Our range of LEXAN™, VALOX™, ULTEM™, and HP coated polycarbonate films from SABIC Innovative Plastics deliver performance and versatility. These materials are characterized by outstanding optical clarity, mechanical strength, and ease of processing.
What kind of polycarbonate products does professional plastics offer?
Professional Plastics supplies machine grade polycarbonate products in a full range of heavy gauge rod, plate and tubular bar sizes. BLACK COLOR IS STANDARD – NATURAL COLOR ALSO AVAILABLE IN SOME SIZES
Why choose lelexan™ polycarbonate film?
LEXAN™ polycarbonate film excels in outstanding optical clarity, printability, impact strength, and dimensional stability when compared with other types of plastic films. It also offers high temperature resistance and superb workability for secondary processes such as die-cutting, embossing, and thermoforming.
