30% Glass Fiber Reinforced PC is a subcategory of Polycarbonate. The additative is added by weight during the manufacturing process. Its elastic modulus ranges from 1250 to 1400 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 19000 to 20000 MPa at break. Its flexural strength ranges from 23000 to 25000 MPa. Its compressive strength ranges from 18000 to 20000 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 1.7 to 3 J/cm. Its elongation at break ranges from 2 to 5 %. Its specific gravity ranges from 1.4 to 1.43. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 22 to 23 x 10-6/°C. Its molding pressure ranges from 10 to 30 MPa.

Polycarbonate, also known as PC, is a thermoplastic polycondensate. Common trade names are Lexan and Makrolon. It has excellent strength, toughness, dimensional stability, dielectric strength, flame retardancy, and impact resistance (highest among transparent rigid materials). It is, however, susceptible to stress cracking with aromatic solvents, and is difficult to machine. PC can be used to make optical lenses, windows, medical items, CD's, and power tool housings. It can also be used in truck cabs.
