What is polycarbonate?

Polycarbonate is a chemical compound created from carbonate groups. With a host of interesting properties including heat resistance, impact resistance and transparency, polycarbonate is the perfect underlying material for chair mat creation.

Other industries, such as aviation, frequently make use of polycarbonate given its extraordinarily durable nature and excellent properties. The cockpit canopy of the F-22 Raptor jet fighter is made from a piece of polycarbonate - "the F-22 polycarbonate canopy provides excellent visibility and performance at supersonic speeds and high g-force conditions".

Research supports polycarbonate as a safe, non-toxic and environmentally friendly alternative to PVC.
