Polycarbonate (PC) is a transparent thermoplastic with carbonate functional groups. Its high strength makes it resistant to impact and fracture. It is lightweight so an excellent alternative to glass. PC is melted and forced into a mold with high pressure to give it the desired shape. It is widely used owing to its eco-friendly processing and recyclability. 

Polycarbonate is a high-performance tough, amorphous, and transparent thermoplastic polymer. It has organic functional groups linked together by carbonate groups (–O–(C=O)–O–). It offers a unique combination of properties. PC is popularly used as an engineering plastic owing to its unique features that include:

  • High impact strength
  • High dimensional stability
  • Good electrical properties amongst others

The characteristics of polycarbonate are similar to polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA, acrylic). But PC is more expensive, stronger, and used in a wider temperature range. It has a melting point of 155°C.

As PC shows excellent compatibility with certain polymers, it is widely used in blends, such as PC/ABS, PC/ PET, and PC/PMMA. Some of the common applications are compact disc, safety helmets, bullet-proof glass, car headlamp lenses, baby feeding bottles, roofing, glazing, etc.
