Polymer Basics for Polycarbonates
Polycarbonates are a group of thermoplastics polymers with Bisphenol (A) parts and carbonate groups in their chemical structure. Polycarbonates are strong, rigid, transparent, and have reasonably high heat resistance, making them optimal materials for industrial and medical trades alike.
In industrial applications, manufacturers use different blends of polycarbonates to enhance the desired properties of the product they are constructing. For example, they can be used to increase the ductility and strength of a given material at varying temperatures. Polycarbonates are also crucial in medical applications such as surgical instruments, connectors, and needle-free injections.
