OMEGA-GARD ® Polycarbonate (PC) is a high molecular weight, amorphous engineering thermoplastics.

It has a wide useful temperature range retaining its tough characteristics to below -50ºC whilst at the other extreme it displays a very respectable deflection temperature of 137ºC at 1.8 MPa. MEGA-GARD ® Polycarbonates are characterized by an excellent combination of toughness, transparency, heat and flame resistance and dimensional stability. The insulating and other electrical characteristics of OMEGA-GARD ® Polycarbonate is excellent and almost unchanged by temperature and humidity conditions.
