Sheffield Plastics Polycarbonate Sheeting are clear and tough

Bayer Makrolon Polycarbonate materials give you a balance of useful features this includes temp resistance, impact resistance and optical properties position polycarbonates between commodity plastic materials and engineering materials.
Polycarbonate is definitely a tough material. Whilst it features significant impact-resistance, it has got minimal scratch-resistance and thus a hard coating could be applied to polycarbonate eye protection lenses and polycarbonate exterior vehicle components. The properties associated with polycarbonate are generally similar to that of those of common Acrylic materials, except polycarbonate definitely is stronger, it is usable in a wider temperature range and is a bit more expensive. This plastic polymer is highly transparent to visible light and it has better light transmission characteristics than many kinds of glass.
Polycarbonate carries a glass transition temperature of about 150 °C (302 °F), therefore it softens gradually above this point and flows above about 300°C (572 °F). Tools ought to be held at higher temperatures, generally above 80 °C (176 °F) for making strain- and almost stress free products.
Unlike most thermoplastics, polycarbonate can undergo dramatic changes in basic shape without cracking or breaking. As a result, it is sometimes processed and formed   cold using standard sheet metal techniques, for instance forming bends on a brake. For even sharp angle bends with a tight radius, no heating is usually necessary. This makes it attractive prototyping applications where transparent or electrically non-conductive parts are crucial, which cannot be crafted from sheet metal. Remember that PMMA/Plexiglas, that is similar in appearance to polycarbonate, but it is brittle and can’t be bent unless it is heated.
Polycarbonate is often utilized in eye protection, along with other projectile-resistant optical type applications that would normally indicate the use of glass, but require much higher impact-resistance. Many kinds of lenses are manufactured from polycarbonate, including automotive headlamp lenses, lighting lenses, sunglass/eyeglass lenses, swimming and SCUBA goggles, and safety visors for use in sporting helmets/masks and police riot gear. Windscreens in small motorized vehicles are typically constructed from polycarbonate, such as for motorcycles, ATVs, golf carts, and small planes and helicopters.
