Plastics are commonly used to make parts and products of various categories, and hence plastic sheets are fabricated to convert them into various shapes, sizes, and designs. Polycarbonate is one such commonly used polymer which is a type of thermoplastic. It comes in various grades, can be machined, and is durable as well as flexible. Polycarbonates have a high tensile strength and optical clarity. Ehren-Haus provides polycarbonate plastic fabrication services. There are several other polycarbonate fabrication services in the US as well as the area we serve, however, we differ in terms of customization that we offer to suit your exact requirements.
We specialize in polycarbonate fabrication of small to large part sizes in quantities from prototypes to full production runs. The parts can be provided in precision tolerances to +/-0.005″.
Are you looking for a reliable polycarbonate fabrication services provider who will understand your requirements and deliver accurately? You may want to work with us. To know more about our polycarbonate fabrication capabilities and machining details, please contact us or call us at 803-431-2256.
Here are our polycarbonate plastic fabrication capabilities:
Vacuum forming process allows us to make extremely complex shapes out of these polycarbonate sheets.
Fusion or joining of two parts is quite essential in making a conjoined component or product. With our bonding capability, we join two or more different grades of polycarbonate depending upon the requirement. This is done through heat treatment.
Create complex and simple bends throughout a sheet to assist in creating specific design requirements for covers, enclosures etc that eliminates all or some bonded seams. Adds strength and aesthetic appeal.
This process, especially when repetitive requires extreme precision, when you need to make several parts of exactly the same dimensions. We can cut small and big parts such as chips as well as boards accurately.
We offer machining, bending, routing, drilling, and various other processes for plastic sheet fabrication.
Drilling, tapping, buffing, polishing fastening.
We work with various types of polycarbonate sheets. They can be categorized based on type and grade. The following are the popular types of polycarbonate sheets we work with.
These polycarbonate grades find application in auto components, aircraft components and so on. Here, it needs to be tough and resistant to fire, oil, and abrasive materials. This type of polycarbonate sheet is tough, resistant to flames, high temperatures, and other extreme conditions they may have to withstand.
This is the typical, transparent and colorless polycarbonate type. This type is extremely flexible and can be customized to suit your requirements. For instance, you can coat a film on it to make it a glazed surface from one side. This offers protection from malicious as well as accidental breakage. Some grades of this type offer UV resistance and hence can be used to protect from continuous sunlight
This is used in applications where tinted surfaces are required such as amber colored bottles and so on. These are also used as roof sheets for terraces or open parking spaces. The commonly used tints are brown, gray, blue, and white.
The bullet resistant glass that is used in high security zones and vehicles is actually a bullet resistant polycarbonate sheets. Our expertise in bullet resistant polycarbonate plastic fabrication has helped us serve our clients for several years.
For packaging of food and medicines, FDA has some stringent requirements. The boxes or packaging material must be compliant with these FDA standards. This is mandatory for manufacturers.
There are several benefits of fabricated parts made of polycarbonate sheets. Here are some of them.
While you can add glaze for UV protection, polycarbonate inherently filters UV rays to some extent and hence finds applications in eyewear.
Polycarbonate is resistant to almost all physical parameters. They include shock, abrasion, heat, harsh weather, moisture, and so on. It has a high impact resistance and does not break easily.
Polycarbonate is totally flexible and can be heavily customized. Depending upon the application, you can make it translucent, opaque from one side, or totally transparent.
Polycarbonate is a naturally insulating material. It works well as an insulating material in electrical devices.
You can get a variety of standard tints in polycarbonate aside from the usual transparent sheet. They include brown, amber, blue, gray, and white. The properties of this type of plastic enables adding a color tint, but preserving its translucent properties.
