Polycarbonate is an amorphous thermoplastic first made at Bayer and General Electric in 1957. 


Polycarbonate has several properties that make it competitive against other plastics. It has good optical transparency and mechanical strength. It has good impact resistance and heat resistance. Polycarbonate is easily machined and has good dimensional stability. It is biologically inert and can be used as electrical insulation.
