Materials for Plastic Face Shields

Polymershapes also offers a wide array of options when it comes to plastics used in the production of protective face shields. Each of these options offer unique qualities and benefits that can suit various fabrication processes and end user needs. Here’s a basic rundown of the options. 


LEXAN™ Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is most known for providing excellent impact resistance, so it’s perfect for instances where plastic face shields need to be durable. This material also offers good visual clarity and scratch resistance. And finally, it’s lightweight and easy to fabricate, so it can work for fabricators that have very specific needs or processes that must be followed throughout the production process. 



PETG offers good impact resistance, scratch resistance, and optical clarity. It’s also extremely easy to fabricate, so it’s perfect for plastic face shields that need to contour to a very specific shape or work with various customization processes. It’s also easy to clean and sanitize, offering a surface that may work for face shields that need to be used on multiple occasions. 



Finally, PET offers an option for plastic face shields that meets sufficient standards for impact resistance, scratch resistance, and optical clarity. The material is also easily fabricated and able to be cleaned and sanitized after use. However, it is also chemical resistant, making it ideal for end users that may need to encounter potentially hazardous materials while performing essential tasks.
