CH3 C CH3

Bisphenol A What are the properties of polycarbonate? Before starting to list properties of polycarbonate, it is probably wise to explain why the properties are the way they are. First, the technical stuff. Take a look at the above diagram. In it, you will see two six-sided structures. These are called phenyl groups. You will also see two groups identified by the label CH3. These are methyl groups. The presence of the phenyl groups on the molecular chain and the two methyl side groups contribute to molecular stiffness in the polycarbonate. This stiffness has a large effect on the properties of polycarbonate. First, attraction of the phenyl groups between different molecules contributes to a lack of mobility of the individual molecules. This results in good thermal resistance but relatively high viscosity (i.e., low melt flow) during processing. The inflexibility and the lack of mobility prevent polycarbonate from developing a significant crystalline structure. This lack of crystalline structure (the amorphous nature of the polymer) allows for light transparency. Now for the clearer, less technical version of the properties. Polycarbonate is naturally transparent, with the ability to transmit light nearly that of glass. It has high strength, toughness, heat resistance, and excellent dimensional and color stability. Flame retardants can be added to polycarbonate without significant loss of properties. The general properties can be summarized as follows: excellent physical properties excellent toughness very good heat resistance fair chemical resistance transparent moderate to high price fair processing

How is polycarbonate sold? In general, the primary distinguishing characteristic of a grade of polycarbonate is its melt flow. The only exceptions are glass fiber reinforced grades, which are sold based on the percentage of glass fiber used in the production of the plastic. Other properties (such as UV stabilization, mold release, impact modification, and flame retardancy) typically differentiate grades of the same melt flow or percentage of glass fiber. Changes in melt flow have an effect on other physical properties. When specifying a grade of polycarbonate, it is necessary to know the conditions under which it will be used. Criteria such as wall thickness, length of flow, environmental conditions including low and/or elevated temperatures, UV exposure, chemical environment and impact requirements all must be considered. In electrical and telecommunication applications, UL flammability and Telcordia specifications must also be considered. Your PTS representative can help you navigate through this application maze.

How is polycarbonate used? It can be injection molded, blow molded, and extruded and is an ideal engineering plastic with good electrical insulating properties, finding applications in electric meter housings and covers, casket hardware, portable tool housings, safety helmets, computer parts, and vandal-proof windows and light globes. The price of polycarbonate restricts its use to mainly engineering applications.

Impact Strength

How do these properties compare to other materials? One of the biggest advantages of polycarbonate is its impact strength. The following diagram compares the impact strength of polycarbonate to other commonly sold plastics.

What is a glass fiber reinforced grade of polycarbonate? The addition of glass fibers to polycarbonate significantly increases the tensile strength, flexural strength, flexural modulus, and heat deflection temperature of the polycarbonate while causing a decrease in the impact strength and tensile elongation. The greater the amount of glass fiber added to the polycarbonate, the greater the effect on each property will be.

Polycarbonate does have its disadvantages. It has only fair chemical resistance and is attacked by many organic solvents. However, through modification with special additives, TRISTAR® PC grades have been developed to pass Bellcore/Telcordia GR-49 Chemical Resistance requirements.

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION

What is polycarbonate? Polycarbonates are long-chain linear polyesters of carbonic acid and dihydric phenols, such as bisphenol A.

UL Approval UL (Underwriters Laboratories) performs various tests on products sold in the United States. One such test, UL94, is used to measure the resistance of plastics to a flame source. For polycarbonate, the test will normally result in a mark of V-0, V-1, V-2. V-0 is the most flame retardant and V-2 is the least flame retardant of the marks typically given to polycarbonate. If the material does not pass the test for V-0, V-1, or V-2; then the product is not UL approved. UL approval is given for a particular product at a measured thickness which is reported with the rating. Hence, saying that a given product is V-2 is insufficient information without also specifying at what thickness the rating is valid. UL approval is required for certain applications of polycarbonate. CONDITION Maximum time any one specimen can burn after removal of 2nd application of flame Maximum glowing time permitted for any one sample after removal of 2nd application of flame Total flaming combustion time allowed (maximum) for the 10 flame applications Ignition of cotton from dripping, flaming particles Flaming combustion up to the holding clamp

94HB Conditions: 1.Shall not have a burning rate exceeding 1.5 inch/minute over a 3 inch span for specimens having a thickness of 0.120 inch and above. 2.Shall not have a burning rate exceeding 3.0 inch/minute over a 3 inch span for specimens having a thickness of under 0.120 inch.

UL INFORMATION

3.Shall cease to burn before the flame reaches the 4 inch reference mark but shall not comply with 94 V-0, V-1, or V-2 requirements. The second part of the UL94 test determines the Relative Thermal Index (RTI) of the material. The RTI is the temperature at which a specific property will decrease to half of its original value after 60,000 hours of exposure at that temperature. If a material has not been tested, the generic RTI for the material is assigned. The generic RTI for polycarbonate is 80°C. PTS TRISTAR® polycarbonate grades have elevated RTI as shown below.

What is FDA certification? Materials that are used in applications that are in contact with food require FDA certification. What is UV stabilization? UV stabilizers are added to polycarbonate to help protect the material from the effects of exposure to the Sun. Radiation from the Sun, especially in the UV portion of the spectrum, degrades the properties of polycarbonate. The addition of UV stabilizers allows the material to sustain exposure to the Sun for a longer period of time. What is mold release? Adding a mold release agent to polycarbonate makes processing easier. It acts in a way similar to a lubricant in the injection molding process. Amorphous: The molecular chains have no distinct uniformity or pattern. The chains are farther apart than a crystalline resin. • Benefits: Low in mold shrinkage • How established: Low mold temperatures

Crystalline: Refers to the molecular structure of the resin (polymer). The degree of crystallinity refes to uniformity and closeness of the molecular chains forming the polymer and resulting from the formation of solid crystals with a definite geometric pattern. • Benefits: dimensional stability, low post mold shrinkage • How established: High mold temperatures

What is PC/ABS? A compounded blend of Polycarbonate and ABS. The PC contributes impact and heat distortion resistance, while the ABS contributes processability and chemical stress resistance, and cost reduction below PC.

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION

What are the properties of PC/ABS? Properties of PC/ABS include the following: • impact resistance between ABS and PC, (10-14 ft.-lb./in.) • strength and stiffness between PC and ABS • heat resistance superior to ABS, less than PC • flame retardant system more stable in processing than ABS • very good indoor UV light color stability • low temperature impact and ductility • superior processability to PC When should PC/ABS be used? PC/ABS should be used for appearance housings, and structural parts which need stiffness, gloss, impact and heat resistance which is higher than ABS, but requiring costs below Polycarbonate. Housings requiring UL V0, but not 5VA-that is, portable electronic devices, not permanently fixed electric devices are also good applications for PC/ABS. Others include appearance parts requiring color fastness under interior UV light, automotive interior parts where temperature environment is between 180 F and 230 F - “above the beltline” applications, and where non-shattering ductility is required like instrument panel retainers. Applications such as painted exterior automotive parts requiring low temperature impact greater than 10 ft.-lb./in. is another place PC/ABS should be used. Any outdoor application should be painted. What is made with PC/ABS? • portable appliances, flashlights, phones • laptop computer cases • keyboards, monitors, printer enclosures • automotive instrument panel retainers • wheel covers, small tractor hoods • non-professional safety helmets

What is PC/PBT? A compounded blend of Polycarbonate and PBT. The PC contributes impact, stiffness and heat resistance, while the PBT contributes chemical resistance. The usual moisture sensitivity of the crystalline PBT is overcome by the PC in the blend. Some grades are made using PET instead of PBT. What are the properties of PC/PBT? • impact resistance, • low temperature impact resistance, ductility • heat resistance • chemical resistance When should PC/PBT be used? PC/PBT is effective

where impact and chemical resistance

are

where low temperature impact, requiring

needed,

and

a ductile failure mode

(non-shattering breaks) is necessary.

Applications such as bumpers and body moldings on autos and lawn & garden equipment, where toughness and resistance to stress cracking from fuels and lubricating fluids are required are good uses for PC/PBT. The shrinkage varies based upon the relative content of the PBT, and therefore tool may be unique for this material, that is, it is not easy to substitute it for other polymers. What is made with PC/PBT? • automotive bumpers • automotive side moldings • lawn and garden tractor hoods • hand tool housings • irrigation components • wiring connectors (PC/PET)
