PC features, advantages, disadvantages and uses

November 2, 2023

Feature A non-crystalline thermoplastic
Advantages 1. It has high strength and elasticity coefficient, high impact strength and wide operating temperature range.
  2. High transparency and free dyeing
  3. H.D.T. high
  4. Good fatigue resistance
  5. Good weather resistance
  6. Excellent electrical characteristics
  7. Tasteless, odorless, harmless to the human body and in line with health and safety
  8. Low molding shrinkage and good dimensional stability
Disadvantages The biggest disadvantage of PC is: it has a large wear coefficient, large wear and no self-lubricating properties. PC is not resistant to stress cracking and can swell in steam and many organic solvents, causing stress cracking; when making PC products with inserts, special attention should be paid to the strength of the insert parts. PC has a greater tendency to undergo thermal deformation at high temperatures
Uses Electronic appliances: CDs, switches, home appliance casings, signal tubes, telephones
  Automobiles: bumpers, distribution panels, safety glass
  Industrial parts: camera body, machine housing, safety helmet, diving goggles, safety lenses
