Die Cut Polycarbonate Overlay

Die Cut Polycarbonate Overlay

Polycarbonate (or Lexan®) is a plastic material that is known for its durability and is often used when a resistant, tough material is required for labels and tags.  It can be used for control panels, nameplates, graphic overlays, membrane switches, and variable serial tags.  Polycarbonate is suitable for branding purposes and is durable enough for tough environments like oil fields.

Lexan® labels and tags from Drake are designed to be weather & chemical resistant and to maintain appearance, longevity, legibility and functionality of information under tough conditions.  Resistant to chemicals such as caustic soda, petro diesel, and emulsifiers.
