Film Run Down: Lexan/Polycarbonate

Lexan is the brand name for polycarbonate film. It’s supplied in sheet form, with a variety of finishes. It’s attractive and resistant to scratches and fingerprints, which is why we recommend it for decorative displays and logos. The standard Lexan is durable, but not chemical resistant so it may not be the best choice for products exposed to solvents or caustic substances. There are “Hard-Coated” versions with a top coat of special chemical resistant material.

Lexan/Polycarbonate is available in a variety of finishes velvet, matte, polished, clear and combinations thereof. Most Lexan used is clear, but its available in a rainbow of other colors. Thickness is the determining factor for this substrate, the thicker it is, the more stable and attractive the product, but thickness drives price as well. We recommend 10-15 mil velvet Lexan for most products.
