Polycarbonate Granules are made of polycarbonates, which are classified as thermoplastic polymers having a tough chemical structure. The polycarbonate polymer is formed by the reaction of carbonyl chloride with bisphenol A in a basic solution. It is very strong with remarkable strength, impact resistance and stiffness. These are transparent materials which can be easily moulded and thermoformed.
Polycarbonate Granules are used for a variety of purposes across different industries. This is majorly used in the automotive industry as a material replacement for standard glass and elastomers for certain parts. This is fast replacing conventional materials, such as metal, wood and glass in a plethora of applications. It is used for manufacturing various materials, such as:
- Face shields
- Architectural glazing
- Machine guards
- Compact Discs and DVDs
- Thermoformed sheets
- Automobile interior parts
- Headlamp lenses
- Headlamp bezels
- POP displays
- Transparent shade, and many more.
It is replacing the conventional materials because of its cheap production costs, and resistance to abrasion and impact.
Depending on the applications, Polycarbonate Granules are manufactured in different colours. For example, Red Polycarbonate Granules, which are used for manufacturing red coloured end products. Since polycarbonate is easily mouldable, it can be formed into any shape with the highest degree of precision. With polycarbonate material, failure of moulding products into a particular shape is very rare. Working with this material doesn't require specialized technology or machinery. Therefore, the production is very cost-effective.
Polycarbonate material is suitable for innovation since it is lightweight and durable. One of the primary aims of innovation is to bring forth cost-effective solutions; hence, this material fits well into the plans of innovators. Today, the material is in high demand in emerging economies because of a number of attributes covering physical features and financial viability.
- Highly resistant to impact, abrasion, and chemicals
- Can be easily moulded and thermoformed
- Cost-effective material in comparison to other conventional materials, like metal and glass
- Strong polymeric structure and good material stiffness
- Easy to form into any shape
- Very rare chance of design failure
- Optical transparency makes it suitable for various applications
- Lower production costs
- Flame-retardant and heat-resistant
- Amorphous properties making it extremely transparent to visible light
