Why use Polycarbonate Screws, Nuts, Bolts and Washers

Polycarbonate (PC) is a type of thermoplastic polymer that is known for its strength, durability, and transparency. Polycarbonate components are made from this material and are used in a wide range of applications. Some of the key features and characteristics of polycarbonate components include:

  1. High strength: Polycarbonate has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, making it one of the strongest thermoplastics available.

  2. Impact resistance: Polycarbonate components are highly resistant to impact and are able to withstand high levels of force without breaking or cracking.

  3. Transparent: Polycarbonate is highly transparent and allows a high level of light transmission, making it suitable for use in applications where visibility is important.

  4. Temperature resistance: Polycarbonate can withstand high temperatures without losing its strength or shape, making it suitable for use in high-temperature applications.

  5. UV resistance: Polycarbonate is highly resistant to UV radiation, making it suitable for use in outdoor applications.

  6. Chemical resistance: Polycarbonate is resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, and organic solvents, making it suitable for use in harsh chemical environments.

  7. Electrical insulation: Polycarbonate has good electrical insulation properties and is suitable for use in electrical applications.

  8. Cost-effective: Polycarbonate is relatively inexpensive compared to other engineering plastics and is widely available.

  9. Flexibility: Polycarbonate can be easily molded and formed into a wide range of shapes and sizes, making it suitable for use in a wide range of applications.

  10. Lightweight: Polycarbonate components are lightweight, making them easy to handle and transport.

Polycarbonate components are widely used in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, construction, electrical, and electronics, medical and pharmaceuticals, and more. They are used in products such as safety goggles, electronic device housings, automotive parts, and medical equipment.
