Polycarbonate Abrasion Resistant

Polycarbonate Abrasion Resistant


What is the Material: Polycarbonate Abrasion Resistant is an amorphous material with an abrasion resistant coating.

Key Material Features: This material differs from other polycarbonate in that is has improved abrasion resistance due to an abrasion resistant coating, while maintaining the properties of other polycarbonate material including transparency, high strength, hardness, and impact strength.

Other Considerations: This material may not be suitable in applications requiring diverse chemical resistance or food grade materials.
