What is Polycarbonate?

Polycarbonate is a material which is greatly favoured by many of IPF’s customers. Its high impact resistance, electrical properties and optical clarity are all properties which are sought after in many industries.


  • High impact resistance
  • Optical clarity
  • Excellent elongation

Why machined polycarbonate?

When optical clarity is required, but acrylic is not going to cut it for your application Polycarbonate is the answer. Higher strength, elongation and impact resistance make it the ideal choice for many products such as housings, light guides, windows, manifolds, covers and lenses.
