VULCAN Polycarbonate Sheets Raw Material

Fundamentals are the foundation of deep simplicity.

A plain, clear sheet of Polycarbonate might not look like much at first glance, though truth is that the devil is in the detail.  As a polycarbonate sheet manufacturer and supplier, the foundation of our products is the base polycarbonate resin, which we have taken extra care in right from the beginning.

There are a couple of items on our base resin checklist, which is also known as the resin portfolio, which is critical to producing the perfect sheet.

  • Resin Category: Is it for Extrusion and Thermoforming?
  • Viscosity Value:  Is it within spec and can fit to use for our machines?
  • Polymer Structure: Linear or Branched?
  • Additive Composition: UV Stabilized or UV Stabilized + Slip Agent
  • Color number: 
  • Melt Volume-Flow Rate (MVR): Is the value within spec.?
  • Melt Flow Rate (MFR): Is the value within spec.?

VULCAN Polycarbonate sheets use only 100% Virgin UV-Stabilized Base Material from the following world renown polycarbonate resin manufacturers:

  • Covestro (Formerly Bayer Material Science)
  • Sabic (Formerly GE)
  • Mitsubishi (Japan)
