Polycarbonate (PC) film is an amorphous thermoplastic material that is known to be tough, impact-resistant, and virtually unbreakable for numerous applications. PolymerFilms is the leading North American distributor of the most commonly recognized polycarbonate film brands, LEXAN™, from the world-leading producer, SABIC. It is offered in a variety of textures which include gloss, velvet, matte, and suede. High-performance PC coated films are scratch-resistant and can be enhanced with available weather resistance and flame retardant grades.
Polycarbonate is 20x stronger than acrylic and retains its physical properties over a greater range of temperatures; PC film is also an outstanding choice for glass, with over 200 x the strength. Besides its high-temperature resistance, LEXAN polycarbonate film has superb workability for secondary processes such as die-cutting, embossing, and thermoforming. Additional unique properties include chemical resistance, anti-fog capabilities, engineering properties, excellent dimensional stability, and electrical properties.
Polycarbonate is often the preferred choice for applications in the Graphics / Print industry, but works well for many other applications as well. Other uses include: interior automotive applications, security & ID card films, touchscreen films, printed electronics, medical packaging, outdoor labels, and more.
