    This is a long shot, but does anyone here know? I'd also like to know what, if any, coating is used on the shell. It's proving hard to find the info online.

    "Polycarbonate" and "soft touch" are not answers :p

    I think you're going to be disappointed. Polycarbonate IS a specific type of material, not an umbrella for many different types of material. The umbrella for polycarbonate would be plastic.

    If you're trying to figure out the specifics of the molding and dye injection process or if it glass infused or not... I think that is all proprietary information, unfortunately.

    Haha, Polycarbonate IS a type of resin. I can think of twenty specific types of PC without even looking. I know it's rude to laugh, but you shouldn't profess to know stuff you don't know. You could've said "I think..."

    Yeah what would I know about a long chain polyester officially marketed as Lexan and originally put on the market by Bayer & GE depending on where you live. It's only been around for 60 years.

    Polycarbonate is Polycarbonate is Polycarbonate. Now if you're asking for the specific proprietary blend being used, then that's trade secret information generally and isn't disclosed to the public.

    Before laughing at someone perhaps you should look into their professional credentials a little more...it will save you from looking foolish.

    Also just throwing this information out there: "Polycarbonates do not have a unique resin identification code"...and do you know why? Because the base is basically the same thing no matter what type of PC it is. What makes it different is what it is blended with.

    ...and as I mentioned before and in this post as well...proprietary blend information is proprietary. :P


    Oh and to remove pretty much all doubt: "Lastly, there are two major types of polycarbonate sold. Virgin polycarbonate is polycarbonate which has not been altered from the time of original manufacturing to the purchase of the product. Polycarbonate regrind comes from polycarbonate that is taken from an end-user and ground into pellets. These new pellets can be compounded again with other material (both virgin and other regrind pellets) to produce a new product. The nature of polycarbonate is such that its properties do not deteriorate significantly after being reground if dried properly prior to processing."

    I'm sure these guys are also idiots though right?


    Oh, and feel free to list those 20 types off the top of your head. If I'm wrong that should be easy for you to do. :)

    Here's a summary of this thread so far:

    Me: What PC resin is used in the 1020?
    You: There are no types of PC. PC is PC.
    Me: You obviously don't know much about this. Anyone else?
    You: There are loads of types of PC resin. Don't laugh at me, I'm a pro.

    All I did was take a longshot and ask a question, and I get this because you messed up your first answer thinking you could BS it.

    The fact you think that that kind of basic historic information is impressive is pathetic. I'd be hard pushed to find someone in my company who didn't know that, thankfully. Including the students.

    Haha, Sabic Resin Codes. Like anyone with self-respect uses Code 7. There's no code for PC in that system, so what are you getting at?
    What of babyish link is that? I learned that at school at 14. Everyone in Europe did.

    Trade secret? Hahaha. So you obviously don't work with plastic. Pay some money for something and you may find the internet has more information than you think.

    I didn't call you an *****, even though you are one. You did that yourself. Maybe you ought to consider that you have no idea what you're talking about, let alone who you're talking to. You're not worth a second of anyone's time.
