PC or Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is an amorphous polymer with excellent transparency. In great thicknesses, it has a slightly yellow tinge.

PC only absorbs small quantities of water (<0.6%) and its mechanical properties are unaffected.

PC is not attacked by diluted mineral and organic acids. It is insoluble in the aliphatic hydrocarbons, ethers and alcohols. Polycarbonate has good insulating properties.

PC is practically self-extinguishing.

Gaggione recommends PC for automotive applications such as aspherical lenses or diffusing lenses. It can also be used for micro Lens Array.
