10-15% PTFE, 20% Fiber Reinforced Lubricated PC is a subcategory of Polycarbonate. The additative is added by weight during the manufacturing process. Its flexural modulus ranges from 850 to 900 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 12000 to 15000 MPa at break. Its flexural strength ranges from 18000 to 23000 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 1.8 to 3.5 J/cm. Its specific gravity ranges from 1.43 to 1.5. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 21.6 to 23.4 x 10-6/°C.
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.
