Polycarbonate (PC) is a type of plastic that is characterized by its high strength, transparency, and stiffness. It is a thermoplastic that is resistant to impact, heat, and chemicals.

PC is commonly used to make a wide range of products, including electronic components, automotive parts, and construction materials. It is also used in the manufacturing of medical devices and sporting goods. One of the main advantages of PC is its high strength and stiffness, which makes it a good choice for use in structural applications. It is also transparent, which makes it a good choice for use in applications where visibility is important.

PC is also easy to process and can be molded into a wide range of shapes and sizes. It is a popular choice for a variety of applications due to its strength, transparency, and stiffness.
