Polycarbonate (PC) material is formed by a condensation polymerization resulting in a carbon that is bonded to three different types of oxygen. PC is known by the trademarked names Lexan, Makrolon, Makroclear and others, are a particular group of thermoplastic polymers. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates have found many applications in 3D printing.
PC Possible Uses
Polycarbonate may be used in electrical and electronic applications, automotive applications, general purpose, medical/healthcare applications, housings, appliances, sporting goods, business equipment, industrial applications and electrical parts.
PC Probable Features
Polycarbonate can be flame retardant, good mold release, lubricated, high flow, good UV resistance, general purpose, good process-ability, high impact resistance, good dimensional stability and high heat resistance.
PC Possible Disadvantages
Polycarbonate may be subject to stress cracking, fairly high processing temperatures required, degrades upon extended residence time in processing equipment, chemical resistance is only fair, aromatic sensitivity.
