Since 1982, polycarbonate has been used to manufacture CDs under the trade name Makrolon.
Thanks to its good adhesive properties and simple processing, polycarbonate (PC) is also ideally suited as a model building material.
Polycarbonate is extremely impact resistant, has high strength and convinces with its good hardness, scratch resistance and dimensional stability. The service temperatures of polycarbonate are between -135 °C and +130 °C for long-term use. Polycarbonate sheets are generally transparent and colourless. However, if PC is exposed to the sun for a long time, the material turns yellow.
Like PMMA (acrylic glass), polycarbonate is relatively notch-sensitive. Polycarbonate sheets up to 2 mm can be scored and broken easily (scratch breaking). Stronger plates should be sawed. Forming is possible with heat input between 180 °C and 220 °C. Dichloromethane is suitable for the production of seamless adhesive joints.
