Yes, PC material is generally considered safe for use in various applications. However, like any material, PC may release small amounts of bisphenol A (BPA) under certain conditions, which has raised some concerns about its safety. To address this, manufacturers often produce BPA-free PC products or use alternative materials for specific applications where BPA exposure is a concern.
Yes, PC material is recyclable, but the recycling process can be more challenging compared to other plastics due to its high melting point and complex chemical composition.
The general tolerance for PC injection molding parts typically ranges from +/- 0.05 mm to +/- 0.1 mm, depending on factors such as part geometry, size, and specific requirements of the application.
