POLYCARBONATE

Polycarbonates (PCare a particular group of thermoplastic polymers that are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates find many applications. Polycarbonate has a glass transition temperature of about 147 °C (297 °F),[6] so it softens gradually above this point and flows above about 155 °C (311 °F).[1]Tools must be held at high temperatures, generally above 80 °C (176 °F) to make strain- and stress-free products. Unlike most thermoplastics, polycarbonate can undergo large plastic deformations without cracking or breaking. As a result, it can be processed and formed at room temperature using sheet metal techniques, such as bending on a brakeMore
