20% PAN Carbon Fiber EMI Shielding (conductive) PC is a subcategory of Polycarbonate. The additative is added by weight during the manufacturing process. Its flexural modulus ranges from 1500 to 1800 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 18000 to 20000 MPa at break. Its flexural strength ranges from 27000 to 28000 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 1.4 to 2 J/cm.
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.
