Yes, No. but it can be heat moulded to form pretty any shape you need.

You can bend thin sheets and this is often the case in protective masks.

It has a high resistance to shattering from impact.

Do you have a particular reason for polycarbonate there may be other plastics that will do the job.

What do you want to do with it? PET is very flexible and can be vacuum formed. Exceptionally clear but scratches.

No not flexible, other than a mild curve in a sheet. Some of the UV resit stuff has a 10 to 15yr life.

Depends what he means by flexible I suppose -as opposed to glass like ?

The inflexibility and the lack of mobility prevent polycarbonate from developing a significant crystalline structure.

SO Steve it is in flexible,glass re inforced pc can have flexibility.

You're a "product engineer" your job is to be able to look it all up.....

Yes, its flexible, the right grades are less UV sensitive than the cheaper grades, but the stuff always seems to embrittle on prolonged exposure.

Hi steve , am product engineer thats y am asking you such questions rather than asking you the software resting questions.This is part and parcel under research am a fresher, thats y i would like to earn the experience from guys like you..

Thanks for the valuable answer
