Fire and smoke toxicity rated polycarbonate for public transportation systems

Polycarbonate - Fire & Toxicity

Properties of fire & toxicity rated polycarbonate

The properties of polycarbonate make the material suitable for use in displays, information boards and Passenger Information Systems (PIS) which are extensively used in mass transportation vehicles (i.e. busses, trains & trams),  bus- and train stations, and airports etc. 
Display applications placed in public transport environments often meet strict fire and smoke toxicity requirements. Therefore PSC supply polycarbonate that does not contribute significantly to the spread of fire or to the generation of toxic gasses. PSC supply polycarbonate which meet the strictest flammability and smoke toxicity requirements, e.g. UL 94, DIN 5510-2 : 2009, NF-F16-101.

Custom coloured

Utilising our unique colour filter technology we can even supply this polycarbonate in customised colours optimised for LED-signage. Read more about our coloured polycarbonate here

Processing and surface features
