Why is polycarbonate sheet so easy to use
Why is polycarbonate board so easy to use? Polycarbonate board is an organic combination of rigidity and toughness. If a material is very rigid, it will be very brittle and will break when it is dropped on the ground. However, although polycarbonate has good rigidity, it is difficult to bend it, but its toughness is also quite good. Products made from it are not easy to break even if heavy objects fall on it. For example, if a 4 kg ball falls from a height of 0.1 meters to a thickness of 1.2 cm, the polycarbonate board can be intact. As the temperature rises, all plastics will soften at a certain temperature and lose their use value. This temperature value is also the maximum use temperature of the plastic. It is conceivable that the higher the temperature value, the wider the use range of plastics. The maximum use temperature of polycarbonate can reach 120 degrees to 130 degrees. About ten years ago, the so-called 'space cup' was popular. It is transparent and light. It is made of polycarbonate. Compared with other plastics, polycarbonate has excellent fire resistance. Without adding any flame retardants, pure polycarbonate can pass a certain level of fire test. If supplemented with a small amount of flame retardant, polycarbonate can reach the highest level of fire protection standards without losing its excellent optical and mechanical properties, which is simply impossible for other plastic products.
