Polycarbonate (PC) plastics are a naturally transparent, although they are made commercially available in a variety of colors.

Polycarbonate polymers are used to produce a variety of materials and are particularly useful when impact resistance such as in bullet-proof glass.

Polycarbonate plastics are engineering plastics in that they are typically used for more capable, robust materials such as in impact resistant “glass-like” surfaces.
