Lexan / Polycarbonate Sign Material

Lexan is the brand name of polycarbonate sheeting material created by a chemical reaction between carbonyl chloride and Bisphenol A. This material is similar to glass or Plexiglass, although it has a high impact strength, meaning it is shatterproof and bulletproof for most weapons.

It is commonly used for lighted signs and automobile windows but can be used for commercial signs, nameplates, or promotional signage. Despite its durability, Lexan does scratch easily.
