Polycarbonates

Much more than just a polycarbonate!

Polycarbonates are used alone or blended in a large variety of applications: housewares, electronics, automotive sector, etc.

But standard polycarbonate markets are limited by their optical and mechanical properties. At the same time, rising concerns about Bisphenol A safety impact is affecting their image.

POLYSORB® isosorbide is a diol that can be used as a monomer in polycarbonates synthesis. It is the perfect plant-based solution to the two ongoing challenges facing the polycarbonate market.

Create much more than a polycarbonate thanks to POLYSORB® isosorbide! It is a safe alternative to bisphenol A (BPA) and it it gives access to new polymer  advantages, such as:

  • Excellent optical properties (low birefringence and excellent light transmission)
  • Chemical & UV resistance (without compounding with special UV stabilizers)
  • High surface resistance, notably scratch resistance

Thanks to their enhanced properties, isosorbide-based polycarbonates can be used in, amongst others, the construction and automotive industries. It can also offer applications as a glass-alternative functional bio-based materials, such as in optical devices and hi-tech films.
