The use of polycarbonate has become so common that almost every kind of product ranging from construction to electronics and even the simplest of accessories like bottles are made from this material. The reason for this is the high resistance it can provide to the materials manufacture. Durability with Polycarbonate is much higher when compared with tempered glass and acrylic. All kinds of products use this material because of its lightweight tendency. Even this can be used to make eyeglasses with such thin precision and yet be durable, and resistant to scratches and sunrays.
The Effectiveness Of Polycarbonate
Polycarbonate is known to be 1/6th as heavy as glass. Even though it is lightweight the plastic is extremely unbreakable. Compact disks and DVDs need to be very strong in resistance to scratches especially, or else they may get stuck in the CD/DVD player. It is for this resistance polycarbonate is used. Even when trying to break discs, it requires tremendous muscle strength to destroy them.
Such is the endurance of this plastic which is why bullet proof glasses use this material. The material is strong enough to block rays of the sun and also UV rays. Polycarbonate panels are manufactured for this very purpose. Bisophenol is used for the manufacture of polycarbonate panels. Moulding comes very easy with these panels, and also increasing the shatter resistance.
Most of these products can be easily recycled which means they won’t harm the environment much. The use of polycarbonate has been a better option for most of the manufacturing industries in spite of the high cost factor only because it can add quality to the substance. Polycarbonate is one of the best materials which can be considered for producing panels, sunglasses, automobile parts which can be resistant to any kind of weather, damage and other alien factors.
