What is the name of the clear plastic used in the pen barrels and caps?
The clear parts of our first generation of pens were all made of Polycarbonate. This was a choice made based upon the improved mechanical properties of the material, with excellent impact strength compared to Plexiglass. However, for a while now, we are using Plexiglass instead, simply because of the material’s machinability and the ease to get an improved mirror smooth polish. After all, the conducted test proved that Plexiglass parts were equally undestroyable as their Polycarbonate predecessors.
