40% Long Glass Fiber Reinforced PC is a subcategory of Polycarbonate. The additative is added by weight during the manufacturing process. Its flexural modulus ranges from 1500 to 1700 MPa. Its elongation at break ranges from 1.4 to 1.7 %. Its molding pressure ranges from 10 to 20 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.
