Polycarbonates are thermoplastics known for toughness and transparency and they offer very high impact strength and elasticity. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed; as such, these plastics are very widely used in modern manufacturing.

This polymer is highly transparent to visible light and has better light transmission characteristics than many kinds of glass. CR-39 is a specific polycarbonate material with good optical and mechanical properties, frequently used for eyeglass lenses. Read more about the uses and benefits machining polycarbonate below.
