Lexan is a polycarbonate. In comparison to other polycarbonates it provides the widest range of properties. It is recognized for its clarity, safety, security, energy savings and formability. It has been proven to be bullet-resistant. And is over 30 times more impact resistant than acrylic (plexiglass). It can be thermoformed, molded and cut to irregular shapes.
Brand name of a polycarbonate sheet that is clear and high impact resistant. It comes with a 3-year warranty against breakage. It is used in commercial and residential glazing for its safety, security, and energy savings.
This is a clear, plastic-like material that is vacuum-formed over molds to create different body styles. These bodies are then painted on the inside so that the paint does not scratch off from less than perfect laps around the track.
LEXANÂ® is a registered trademark for General Electric Company's brand of highly durable polycarbonate resin thermoplastic intended to replace glass where strength justifies its cost. It is a polycarbonate polymer consisting of chains of Bisphenol A alternating with carbonyl chloride, also known as phosgene. The trademark holder promotes the style "LEXAN", but both "Lexan" and "lexan" are commonly used (at least outside the context of sales literature), without implying claims about its source.
