What is LEXAN Polycarbonate?
LEXAN Polycarbonate is best known for being an exceptional alternative to glass. When a company is looking for a material that is shatterproof, such as with security and protection, but still need to keep it aesthetically pleasing, they will often choose LEXAN Polycarbonate. The polycarbonate resin thermoplastic material is known to have an impact strength 30 times that of Acrylic, and 250 times greater than glass. It deforms without breaking or cracking, making it perfect for windows, bulletproofing products and in settings where a high chemical resistance is required.
Tinted LEXAN Polycarbonate sheet is much lighter than glass and much safer to use. It boasts a low moisture absorption, low friction, and certain grades are FDA and 3-A Dairy compliant for use in food processing.
