Product Description

The transparent clear polycarbonate round rod has a standard tolerance and meets American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM D3935 specifications. Polycarbonate (PC) is a durable plastic that maintains its toughness, dimensional stability, and excellent impact resistance in a wide range of temperatures. Typically, the material maintains its electrical insulating properties and resists creep in extreme temperatures and humid environments. Transparent clear polycarbonate is often used as a lightweight, impact-resistant alternative to glass.

Plastic refers to a group of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that have been engineered to achieve specific properties. The most notable characteristics of plastics are its low weight, machinability, corrosion resistance, and typically good thermal and electrical insulating properties. Certain plastic grades also offer optical transparency similar to glass, low-friction or self-lubricating surfaces, and exceptional impact resistance. Depending on their properties, certain plastic grades can be used as alternatives to metal, glass, and ceramic. Unlike metal, plastic may experience creep, which is deformation caused by longtime exposure to a constant load.

Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Impact resistance is the measure of a material’s ability to absorb a shock of energy before breaking.

Warning the description of the rod is smooth and clear. It has a mill finish and is opaque. It will only be clear once it has been polished. So it is not as described. Otherwise it is a poly carbonate rod. I gave it 2 stars only because of the description to warn people.

As another reviewer said, this rod is not as pictured or described. It's NOT transparent, not even translucent as shipped. With a little sanding and polishing it gets shiny but it's actually sort of opaque and slightly dark in color (maybe from the blue writing on the side?).

It's a solid rod but not what I need for my project.

With the description saying "Transparent" I would expect it to be so. I would describe it as frosted or translucent at best. Otherwise I managed to make it work for my purpose.

When I first ordered I got the wrong item. Contacted Amazon and had the correct item the next day. I wanted to use this item as a bolt stop pin for a 10/22, however the standard tolerance for a 1/4" that they state in the description was a little much. The rod was consistent at .253 and the pins are .250. It wasn't easy but I was able to spin it in a lath and sand off the extra .002. It's a good thing that it was oversize and not undersized.

Great item for multi use in various projects. I've used other plastic rods but they don't hold up like these polycarbonate rods do. Really tough!

I am using this product for shaft extensions on electronic controls where very high voltage is present (around 1000 volts).
