About Lexan Polycarbonate Film
Lexan is SABIC Innovative Plastics’ registered trademark for polycarbonate film. Lexan polycarbonate film is a high quality, tough, dimensionally stable and heat-resistant material ideally suited to a number of graphic and industrial applications. It is available in a range of thicknesses with textured, polished or hard-coated surfaces.
Advantages of Lexan Polycarbonate for Graphic Overlays and Labels
Lexan is extremely durable in harsh environments and has exceptional temperature characteristics performing well in conditions ranging from -40°F to 275°F (-40°C to 135°C).
The printing process is normally done on the underside of plastic to ensure durability. Sub-surface printed Lexan labels provide permanent protection to the graphics, they are chemical and abrasion resistant and UV impervious. Since the inks are printed on the back (or subsurface), they can’t be rubbed, scuffed or scratched off. This makes Lexan an excellent choice for graphic overlays, nameplates, control panels, instrument panels, front panels and heavy-duty labels. They are often used to cover membrane switches. With die cut holes to operate the switches, they protect the controls while the velvet or matte finish resists scratching due to heavy usage.
