High-Quality Plastics

SABIC offers high quality polycarbonate plastics under the LEXAN™ portfolio. Polycarbonate is an amorphous thermoplastic transparent polymer. It has outstanding physical properties and is used extensively for engineering and optical applications. LEXAN™ is one of the world’s most valued and widely-used glass substitute. Polycarbonate is a crystal clear, virtually unbreakable thermoplastic sheet.

LEXAN™ distinguishes itself from other plastic materials by its optical purity in combination with very high impact resistance. LEXAN™ high-grade plastics are 250 times stronger than glass of the same thickness. Unlike most plastics, SABIC’s high-quality plastics can also withstand high temperatures. It’s a unique material that is very lightweight, making it easy to work with. Our LEXAN™ unbreakable plastics are backed by advanced technical support and application development services worldwide.
