What is Polycarbonate Molding Material?

Polycarbonate (PC) is a thermoplastic polymer consisting of several different monomer types in combination, also known as a copolymer. When set to a high enough temperature, polycarbonate will liquefy and become usable in plastic injection molding processes.

Molding Benefits of Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate injection molded components maintain a host of advantages over the alternatives. The material is highly moldable and can be used to make custom polycarbonate parts. Polycarbonate plastic parts preserve their flexural and impact strength. It is a durable and transparent material resistant to heat, chemical corrosion, and shattering. Polycarbonate injection molding allows for:

  • Fast Cycle Times
  • Part-to-Part Repeatability
  • Scalability
  • Reduction Surface Defects
  • & More!

Polycarbonate Plastic Specifications (At Room Temperature)

At room temperature, polycarbonate (PC) is incredibly strong and durable upon impact. With a similar transparency profile to glass, polycarbonate is commonly used in applications that need material to be strong yet see-through, such as eyeglass lenses.

Chemical Formula C15H16O2
Melting Point (°C) ~315°C
Tensile Strength ~8500 psi
Impact Strength ~1.5 ft-lb/in notched Izod 
Hardness Level (Rockwell) R126
Flexural Modulus ~13500 psi

Common Applications of Polycarbonate Injection Molding

Polycarbonate is one of the most commercially available plastics today. Not only with industrial injection molding, but additionally many everyday applications. Eyeglass lenses are the most common use for polycarbonate material. Other applications this material is best for include:
