Lexan is a registered trademark for SABIC Innovative Plastics' (formerly General Electric Plastics) brand of polycarbonate resin thermoplastic.
Lexan is the brand name for polycarbonate sheet and resin in a wide
range of grades. Applications are mainly in three domains–building (glazing and domes),
industry (machine protection and fabricated parts) and communication
and signage. Common usages include space and sports helmets, clear high
performance windshields and aircraft canopies, and bullet resistant
We use a velvet textured Lexan on our Asset Tags for scratch resistance. You can scratch the surface with a knife and still scan a barcode underneath. Our Lexan Overlays generally have a 3 mil coating of Lexan over a 7 mil plastic, but Lexan is available in several thicknesses, depending on the application. Most asset tags have a .003" Lexan overlaminate for protection.
