The high-performance and sustainable properties of Makrolon® polycarbonate (PC) make it a go-to Makrolon PC material for applications in diverse industries. Manufacturers rely on Makrolon® polycarbonate’s unique combinations of properties. It is virtually unbreakable, lightweight with glass-like transparency and is impact resistant – even at extremely low temperatures. It has a high dimensional stability and is easily molded, yet has excellent heat resistance with a glass transition temperature of up to 148ºC. General purpose grades are offered in transparent, translucent and opaque colors and supplied in granular form. Furthermore, special colors can also be developed upon request, for general purpose and for most special grades. Products made out of polycarbonate boast a long life and allow efficient reusability. Stronger and lighter than glass, polycarbonate also provides energy and CO2 emmision savings. Furthermore, it reduces product losses due to breakage during distribution and use. Most post-production waste is mechanically recycled into “recyclate grade” polycarbonate blends.
