Polycarbonate (PC) is a naturally transparent thermoplastic with high impact resistance and a UV filter. It is a common lighter weight alternative to glass and is prone to scratches. Polycarbonate can be heated and cooled for at least two times without causing significant changes. This lack of degradation and burning makes polycarbonate suitable for injection molding and therefore, applicable for recycling. Polycarbonate is sold commercially in many colors. It is often used in protective gear and medical devices, yet can also be found in containers, such as square storage bottles. Thermoplastics have a melting point of 311°F.
