LexanPolycarbonate (Lexan)

When you require a material that is impact resistant and comes with high optical, electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties, then Lexan, or Polycarbonate, is what you need. This material, which was first discovered in the late 1800s, did not really come to fruition until the mid 1950s when extensive research was made into its production. The Lexan sheets that Nameplates uses in the manufacture of various labels and tags are great for highly detailed requirements since these come with features that include true color reproduction, optical clarity, and amazing depth effect.

These are chemical resistant, scratch resistant, and are rather impervious to standard wear and tear. These can be used for many applications like medical packaging, LED or LCD display windows, labels for home appliances like washing machines and dishwashers, and even for audio and video equipment control panels. This particular material is also great for use with other consumer electronics and indoor display applications.

Lexan can come in many different grades, with some having special textures that can enable it to be used in special applications. This particular material can also come in a polished grade that people choose to use for their arrays and panels. Aside from versatility and durability, this material can also be easily worked to precise designs. It is considered environmentally friendly, is flame retardant, UV-ray resistant, and compliant with USP and FDA requirements.
