Top Supplier of Infrared Transmitting Polycarbonate in China

Infrared Transmitting Polycarbonate and Machining Service

Infrared Transmitting Polycarbonate is designed to transmit infrared rays while blocking ultraviolet (UV) and visible light by the specifically formulated polycarbonate material, which some people call “IR Polycarbonate” or “IRT Polycarbonate.” Infrared-transmitting Polycarbonate is an opaque black plastic sheet that offers the same mechanical properties as a normal polycarbonate sheet but allows infrared light to pass through. Normally, It is recommended to be used for the transmitters and receivers of infrared rays, for example, Cameras, Rifle Optics, Sighting Devices, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Automatic Drive, Home Automation, etc.

Compared with Infrared Transmitting Acrylic, Infrared Transmitting polycarbonate offers higher impact resistance, heat resistance, etc. UVPLASTIC offers Infrared Transmitting Polycarbonate sheets with thicknesses from 0.5mm to 3mm. Meanwhile, we also provide machining services, including Cutting to size, Die-cutting, CNC routing, injection molding, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Infrared Rays are generally understood to include wavelengths from around 750 nm to 1 mm (frequencies of 400 THz to 300 GHz).

Light includes three types of lights, please see the following list:

Type of lightWavelength
Ultraviolet Ray10–400 nanometers
Visible Light400–700 Nanometres
Infrared Ray750 nm to 1 mm

The threshold value is the initial value of an Infrared ray that can pass through the polycarbonate.

Infrared can pass through most transparent materials, such as glass, acrylic sheets, and polycarbonate sheets, but these materials also transmit visible light and Ultraviolet.

UVPLASTIC provides Infrared-Transmitting Polycarbonate and Infrared-Transmitting Acrylic, which can transmit infrared and block visible light and Ultraviolet.

Firstly, they can transmit infrared and block visible light and Ultraviolet, but Infrared Transmitting Polycarbonate is stronger than Infrared-Transmitting acrylic. Meantime, Infrared Transmitting Polycarbonate works well from -40°C to 120 °C, while Infrared Transmitting acrylic works well from -20°C to 65 °C.

Otherwise, Infrared Transmitting Polycarbonate offers a little lower Infrared Ray Transmittance than Infrared Transmitting Acrylic.

The color is opaque black.
