A comprehensive range of engineering plastics from Thames Stockholders

   Polycarbonate (PC)



Polycarbonate (PC) is an amorphous transparent material offering a combination of good electrical and mechanical properties. It is a material grade which lends itself well to a variety of industry applications. As well as being recyclable, Polycarbonate benefits from good machinability and can be accurately processed to close working tolerances. An enhanced version of Polycarbonate (PC GF 20) offers improved tensile strength and stiffness with lower coefficient thermal expansion.

Polycarbonate can be machined to close tolerances.

Typical commercial applications for POLYCARBONATE (PC) DATASHEET engineering plastic include:

  • Manifolds
  • Automotive parts
  • Safety glasses, impact guards
  • Packaging


  • High impact strength and heat resistance
  • Good electrical insulation characteristics
  • Fracture resistant
  • Transparent with good dimensional stability

We stock Polycarbonate (PC) engineering plastic in extruded bar, extruded sheet/plate and tubular bar. We welcome stock enquiries from both domestic and international customers.
