PC is a plastic material with perfect toughness and practicality. It has the characteristics of light weight, high transparency, good impact resistance, good dimensional stability, weather resistance, good electrical insulation properties and easy shaping. It is used in many modern life. Among the fields: electronics and IT equipment, auto parts, mechanical equipment, medical equipment and LED lighting. Let's look at the application of PC materials in various industries in detail below.
Building Materials Industry
The polycarbonate sheet has good light transmittance, impact resistance, resistance to ultraviolet radiation and its dimensional stability and good molding and processing performance, which makes it have obvious technical performance advantages over the traditional inorganic glass used in the construction industry. China has built more than 20 production lines for polycarbonate building materials hollow board, and the annual demand for polycarbonate material is about 140,000 tons.
polycarbonate plastics has good impact resistance, thermal distortion resistance, good weather resistance and high hardness, so it is suitable for the production of various parts of cars and light trucks. It is mainly concentrated in lighting systems, instrument panels, heating panels, and bumpers made of polycarbonate alloy.
The proportion of transparent polycarbonate used in the electrical and electronic and automobile manufacturing industries is 40%~50%, and the proportion of China’s use in this field is only about 10%. The electrical and electronic and automobile manufacturing industries are China’s rapidly developing pillar industries. The demand for polycarbonate will be huge.
Because polycarbonate products can withstand steam, cleaning agents, heating and high-dose radiation sterilization without yellowing and physical performance degradation, they are widely used in artificial kidney hemodialysis equipment and other devices that need to be operated under transparent and intuitive conditions. In medical equipment that requires repeated disinfection. Such as the production of high-pressure syringes, surgical masks, disposable dental appliances, blood separators, etc.
With the rapid development of aviation and aerospace technology, the requirements for various components in aircraft and spacecraft continue to increase, making the application of PCs in this field increasing. According to statistics, there are 2500 polycarbonate components used on a Boeing aircraft alone, and a single plane consumes about 2 tons of polycarbonate. On the spacecraft, hundreds of polycarbonate components with different configurations and reinforced by glass fiber and astronaut protective equipment are used.
Since polycarbonate granules has good and constant electrical insulation in a wide range of temperature and humidity, it is an excellent insulating material. At the same time, its good flame retardancy and dimensional stability make it form a broad application field in the electronic and electrical industry.
Polycarbonate occupies an extremely important position in this field with its unique characteristics of high light transmittance, high refractive index, high impact resistance, dimensional stability and easy processing and molding. Optical lenses made of optical grade polycarbonate can be used not only for cameras, microscopes, telescopes and optical testing instruments, but also for film projector lenses, copier lenses, infrared auto-focusing projector lenses, laser beam printer lenses, and various office equipment and household appliances, such as prisms, polygon mirrors, etc., have a very broad application market.
