PC (polycarbonate)

Industrial grade (colourless, translucent)

PC is an amorphous polymer of the polyester family. Due to the low degree of crystallinity, PC has a high transparency. The plastic is characterized by high strength, rigidity and hardness.

In addition, PC is also quite impact resistant. In contrast to chemical resistance, the material is very resistant to external influences such as weather or UV radiation.


The features of PC are:
  • High mechanical strength
  • High hardness
  • Good creep resistance
  • Good impact strength and rigidity over a wide temperature range
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Low water absorption
  • Good electrical and dielectric properties
  • Physiologically harmless (BGA-FDA and EU / 10/2011 approval)


PC can be used in the following areas:
  • Electrical appliances
  • Medical equipment
  • Precision Engineering
  • Caps
  • Level indicators
  • Inspection glasses

Modification options

PC GF 30

This 30% glass fibre reinforced PC has higher strength, stiffness, creep resistance and dimensional stability than the unreinforced material.


  • Very high rigidity
  • High mechanical strength
  • High creep resistance
  • Very high dimensional stability
  • Good fatigue resistance


These properties mean that the material is well suited for parts exposed to high static loads in the higher temperature range in the long term.

Since glass fibres tend to cause significant abrasion on the mating surface, PC GF30 is less suitable for sliding applications.
