Material

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate (PC) is a Blue Card-certified flame-retardant thermoplastic and is among the most widely used industrial thermoplastics. It offers excellent impact strength, dimensional stability, and temperature resistance, making it ideal for functional prototypes and end-use parts in demanding engineering environments or for applications that need high flexural and tensile strength.
