Polycarboronate (PC) is a tough, impact resistant, and extremely durable polymer that is often used in place of glass. It is considered one of the best alternatives for its ability to protect against projectiles. Polymershapes is thrilled to stock the world’s leading PC sheet brand – LEXAN™ Polycarbonate Sheet. If you are wondering, “Where can I find the best plastic distributors near me,” look no further than Polymershapes. Find a branch near you.
This polycarbonate resin thermoplastic beats out competitors such as Acrylic and glass for many reasons. LEXAN sheet is known to have an impact strength 30 times greater than Acrylic and 250 times greater than glass. Golf cart windshields and bullet proof glass are all made of Polycarbonate, and likely, LEXAN sheet. Another benefit of choosing Polycarbonate LEXAN sheet over glass or Acrylic? It is an amorphous thermoplastic material, with a continuous use temperature range of up to 265 degrees Fahrenheit.
In fact, Polymershapes is the leading North American distributor of LEXAN. In addition to stocking the product, we can create custom sizes cut just for your commercial needs.
