  • Polycarbonate Enclosures 101: A Guide for Specifiers
    . Then, in the 1950's, GE and Bayer concurrently developed polycarbonate resin, and in the 1960's the new resins (Lexan for GE and Makrolon for Bayer) began finding their way into the marketplace. Due to its exceptional impact strength, machinability, formability, and UV stability, polycarbonate-based
  • Polycarbonate
    Polycarbonates are amorphous engineering thermoplastics that offer exceptional toughness over a wide temperature range. The resins are produced in the U.S. by Dow Chemical Co. (Calibre), General Electric Co. (Lexan), and Mobay Chemical Corp. (Makrolon). The natural resins are waterclear
