Colourless and form-stable

Polycarbonates are translucent thermoplastics and are produced through conversion of bisphenol A with phosgene. PCplastics distinguish themselves through a wide spectrum of interesting and highquality material properties.

They are heat distortion resistant, very tough, can be sterilised and possess excellent electrical insulation properties. Based on their transparency, polycarbonates are often used as optical parts such as cover boxes or windows for measuring and switch devices.
