Polycarbonate - Machine Grade
Timco offers parts fabricated from machine grade polycarbonate in both natural (transparent, but not an optical grade) and black. It is a hard and rigid material that offers remarkable impact strength and flexibility. Its mechanical properties are only marginally influenced by temperature fluctuations. It absorbs almost no water and has good insulating characteristics. It is often used for structural applications such as sight glasses, and is also widely used for electrical/electronic components. The material is flame resistant, self-extinguishing and classified as UL-class 94-HB. Polycarbonate parts sold by Timco are not UV-stabilized.
