The polycarbonate (PC) is an amorphous thermoplastic material, belonging to the family of aromatic polyesters. The most important polycarbonate is produced by conversion of bisphenol A (formed from phenol and acetone) with phosgene. There are also various copolymers: the polycarbonate based on bisphenol-trimethylcyclohexane (PC-TMC), the poliftalato carbonate (PPC), the aliphatic dicarboxylic acid-based polycarbonate, and the diphenyl polycarbonate (DPC).
CHARACTERISTICS AND APPLICATION FIELDS
The PC can be worked with all of the typical methods for thermoplastic materials, can therefore be injection molded, extruded, welded, glued and mechanically worked.
The unreinforced PC is transparent and very glossy surface. Heat in the range from -150 ° C to 135 ° C is shock resistant and has rigidity, hardness and high strength. The maximum operating temperatures are 150 ° C for short exposures and 130 ° C for long exposures. And ‘sensitive notch and has good electrical characteristics. The PC has a good stability against strong radiation and a good resistance to weathering. The chemical resistance is limited, and the carbon dioxide permeability is relatively high. There is a danger of cracking under stress. To improve the characteristics of the glass fibers can be added, graphite, molybdenum disulfide, PTFE and aluminum powder.
Due to the transparency, the heat stability and resilience the PC can be used for the production of electronic housings, parts of household appliances, optical data carriers, apparatus for lighting, lenses, windows, windows, screens, containers for water , distribution boxes and panels for lights. The PC is suitable for various applications in the food industry, aerospace and medical.
