Polycarbonate Injection Molding
Retlaw Industries manufactures high-quality, lightweight, and durable polycarbonate custom plastic parts. Polycarbonate components are durable, transparent, and can be manufactured with tight tolerances, making them an ideal choice for a variety of industries.
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
- 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.
