Impact-resistant and lightweight polycarbonate cover glass | PSC

Polycarbonate

If impact- and vandal resistance is the most important criterion for your cover glass solution, polycarbonate might just be the perfect choice.

Polycarbonate is also a very lightweight option for cover glass solutions, if your application has a certain weight limit.

At PSC, we provide highly customized colored and transparent polycarbonate solutions for every application.

Lightweight and impact-resistant

Polycarbonate means durability and safety of your electronic display due to its high shock- and impact resistance and good flammability properties.

We have a wide range of transparent and custom-colored polycarbonate readily available to process into application-specific solutions. Within this range, we offer various combinations of color and fire ratings for high-demand applications matching our customers' exact requirements.

Polycarbonate is easily machined, cut, and formed, and additions such as EMI-shielding, silkscreen printing, and coatings can also be combined with polycarbonate, making it a very versatile material. Here at PSC, we also apply all these technologies upon request.

Fire- and toxicity-rated polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is excellent for displays, information boards, and passenger information systems (PIS) used in the public transport industry. Display applications in public transport environments often meet strict fire and smoke toxicity requirements.

That is why PSC supplies polycarbonate that hinders the spread of fire and the generation of toxic gasses. PSC's fire-resistant polycarbonate meets the strictest flammability and smoke toxicity requirements, such as EN 45 545, UL94 v0, DIN 5510-2: 2009, NF-F16-101.

 

Surface features and processing

Although polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable, it is a relatively soft material compared to PMMA and glass. Typically, a surface treatment, such as Fine MatHard Mat, or HC Clear is applied to provide the polycarbonate cover glass solution with the necessary and application-specific surface features.

These may be features such as anti-glare or scratch resistance from a hard coating for polycarbonate.
