Overview
Polycarbonate film is a clear general purpose film from the thermoplastic polymer family. It can be easily thermoformed and molded.

Polycarbonate film is easy to die-cut and has excellent ink adhesion which makes it a good choice for various applications such as:

  • Menu boards
  • Touch panels
  • Labels
  • Nameplates
  • Overlays

Polycarbonate Film Standard Sizes

  • Length, width, thickness, and tolerances vary by manufactuerer
  • Custom sizes and colors available upon request
