All About Polycarbonates

Everything you need to know about Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate, also known as Lexan, is an excellent material to enhance the look of any product. No other product label offers as many finishes or thicknesses.

It is widely stocked (fast deliveries), easy to process (lower cost), and aesthetically pleasing.
