A reason this guide will provide all answer you have been looking for.
So, ensure you read all sections of this guide before buying polycarbonate helmet.
Keep reading to learn more.
What Properties Does Polycarbonate Helmet Possess?
Polycarbonate helmet has their shell made from synthetic plastic resin containing several carbonates hence the name polycarbonates.
Polycarbonate helmet is one of the most popular motorcycle helmet due to the following properties:
Polycarbonate material composition is very light hence the making the resulting helmet light weighted.
This makes riding comfortable especially for high speed riders on and off road.
Thermoplastic material used for making polycarbonate helmet is mechanically tough thus offering great tensile and yield strength.
Polycarbonate helmet can therefore withstand great impact and pressure before it breaks.
Impact And Temperature Resistant
The purpose of a helmet is to protect riders from head injuries in case of an accident or a fall.
Therefore, impact resistance is a major factor when choosing a helmet.
Polycarbonate helmet is highly impact resistant and wont easily be compromised under certain temperature and stress.
This is because it is layered with another tough material known as polystyrene liner.
It is able to distribute force throughout its body without puncturing or crashing.
The manufacturing process of polycarbonate helmet is relatively low due to low cost of materials and labor.
As a result, the overall cost of polycarbonate helmet is cheap.
Polycarbonate material is naturally clear hence it is easy to add various colors to it during manufacturing.
Are Polycarbonate Helmets Safe?
Polycarbonate helmets are subjected to a safety test scheme before they can be released into the market.
Their safety property is derived from their high impact resistant, strength and light weight features.
This means that they cannot easily crash under force or extreme temperatures.
Additionally, the are light weight hence do not interfere with riders’ stability at high speed.
What Quality Mark Of Standardization Should Polycarbonate Helmet Have?
Quality polycarbonate helmet should bear standardization marks such as; DOT, ECE 22.05, Snell, etc. to signify compliance to safety measures.
A good polycarbonate helmet should meet and exceed the set quality standards.
How Do You Customize Polycarbonate Helmet?
Customization of polycarbonate helmets is very possible when you order from a manufacturer.
Customization services can be offered for color, size, inner material, cheek paddings, straps, ventilators, etc.
Customized polycarbonate helmet
When ordering inform manufacturer of your specifications and request for sample mold before proceeding with production.
Which Polycarbonate Helmet Safety Features Should You Look For?
A polycarbonate helmet is a safety gear used by motorcycle riders to provide protection during accidents.
They can be upgraded with technological features such as Bluetooth speakers for easy communication when riding.
Besides these capabilities, their overall structure must remain the same to maintain its safety purpose.
Polycarbonate helmet is made up of the following [parts which ensure it provides the required safety.
This part is external facing and is made from polycarbonate material.
Its main purpose is to protect your head from impact or abrasion during an accident or penetration from external objects.
It is rigid in nature and is meant to distribute force from impact all over the helmet without cracking or puncturing.
Impact Absorbing Inner Lining
The immediate layer after the outer rigid shell is a lining made from Styrofoam known as expandable polystyrene foam.
This foam is stiff and its work is to absorb the energy from the impact and displace it.
This prevents the energy transfer to your head thus is the second line of defense.
In the event that the impacting force is too high, the impacted area will collapse to fully absorb the shock.
Padded Comfort Fit
Padded comfort layer comes after impact absorbing layer in the interior part of polycarbonate helmet. This is where your head rests while having the helmet on.
It is made from a cell form and covered with a cloth to absorb sweat and keep you cool.
During fitting, ensure the helmet provides maximum comfort to your head.
It can be removed or changed too fit any head shape.
Also known as visor is a safety feature meant to protect your eyes when riding.
It prevents road debris, insects and weather conditions such as sunlight and wind from interfering with your visibility.
Ventilation systems are available in full face and ¾ helmet designs to prevent visor fogging and cool you as you ride.
They are adjustable options which allow riders to open, close or leave it in between depending on the riding weather.
Chin straps are meant for securing the helmet on your head to prevent movement when riding.
It is made from woven material and has fastening D-straps that lock it in place.
When secured in place, it should only allow two fingers between the strap and your chin.
Chin straps are also covered with comfort layer material for sweat absorption on your chin area in order to maintain comfort.
These are added features to ensure adequate comfort and retain helmet position on your head.
They can be removed for cleaning or customized to fit different head shapes.
What Are The Available Designs For Polycarbonate Helmet?
There are various design categories of polycarbonate helmets that are available in the market.
Full Face Helmet
Full face polycarbonate helmet covers your whole head and neck offering you protection from impact.
It has a chin bar; a crucial safety feature to protects your chin and jaw from impact during an accident.
This helmet is designed such that it does not lift when riding at high speed in a crouching position. They are mostly common with sports riders.
full face helmet
Full face helmet also has a visor opening for ventilation and air circulation and prevent fogging when riding.
The visor opening is strategically positioned near helmet top.
Modern full face helmet can be integrated with Bluetooth technology, high visibility design and adjustable visors in sunlight conditions.
Open Face Helmet
Open face helmet is also known as ¾ helmets due to its design.
This design of polycarbonate helmet covers the top, side and back of your head leaving your face uncovered.
Riders wearing open face helmet are exposed to road debris and weather conditions.
open face helmet
Open face helmet does not have a chin bar as full face helmet thus exposing your chin to impact during an accident.
This helmet design is common with café racers, tourers and cruisers.
They weigh slightly less than full face helmets due to the absence of a china bar.
Open face helmet come with partial or full face visors for eyes protection or one can purchase separately.
Unlike open face helmet, half helmet only covers the top of your head, the forehead and your brow leaving your face exposed.
Some half helmet covers the back of your neck and ears and leave the face as well.
This helmet requires users to buy their own face shield or riding goggles separately.
Since it does not have enough space, they are less likely to have Bluetooth speaker integration.
Off-road (Motocross, Dirt bike) Helmet
Off-road helmet is meant for riding off the highway on dirt roads.
They do not come equipped with eye shield hence riders need to buy riding goggles for eye protection.
Off-road helmet is made from composite fiber to offer great mechanical strength and light weight to prevent riders from head fatigue.
off road helmet
This helmet design has wider visor area for good airflow and a prominent chin bar for maximum protection.
When buying an off-road helmet, ensure your goggles and body armor fit well with the helmet before buying the helmet.
Dual Sport (Crossover, Hybrid, Enduro) Helmet
Dual sport helmet combine full face and off-road design hence have a large visor than in full face.
The visor can snap open for use of face shield such as goggles.
The visor is aerodynamic thus cannot be affected by wind at high speed.
The chin bar is not accentuated as in off-road helmet thus have better sound proof and less air flow.
Their outer design resembles that of an off-road helmet with the less protruding chin bar and wide visor. On the interior, it is similar to full face helmet in terms of padding and comfort offered.
dual sport helmet
This type of polycarbonate helmet is ideal for use both off-road and on the highway.
You can snap open the visor off-road and use goggles and air flow.
Modular (Flip-up) Helmet
Modular helmet is a mix of ¾ helmet and full face helmet. This is because the chin bar and the visor can flip open the front part of the helmet.
Modular helmet resembles full face helmet in terms of material and fitment design.
It is however a little heavier than full face due to the additional features for flipping the visor and chin area.
This type of helmet may have a secondary internal visor for extra eye protection besides the normal visor.
They are fitted for upright riding position common with cruisers, tourers and adventure riders.
The chin bar is lower on the face and the visor openings are straightforward.
Modular helmet can be incorporated with Bluetooth speaker, dual visor with an anti-fogging system.
How Does Polycarbonate Helmet Compare With Other Helmet Materials?
The outer shell of helmet can be made from different materials and that is what sets them apart.
There are two materials used in the manufacture of helmets namely; plastics and composite fiber materials.
Plastic Material Helmets
Plastic material helmets are constructed from thermoplastics or thermoset resins.
Polycarbonate material is in the category of thermoplastic compound including Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) or a mix of both.
Polycarbonate helmets are heavier than composite materials.
They are manufactured by injection molding process of molten thermoplastic on a helmet shaped mold and left to cool and harden.
These helmets can be recycled by melting and reshaping by following the same process since no chemical reaction occurs.
Unlike polycarbonate helmets, advanced thermoset resins (ATR) made helmets require curing for their hardening process.
The curing agent 9usually an epoxy) activates a chemical process which cures and hardens the mold.
ATR helmets cannot be recycled sue to the chemical process during its formation.
ABS helmets are rigid, highly heat and chemical resistant and are strong.
ABS are heavier than polycarbonate helmets which have higher impact resistance and are clear.
Polycarbonate helmets offer better protection than ABS helmets and are a little costlier as well.
Composite Fiber Material Helmets
These helmets are made from composite fiber materials such as fiberglass, carbon fiber and Kevlar.
Composite helmets are made by repeatedly crisscrossing fiber materials layers at certain angle while adding resins and filler.
Once a certain weaving and strength is achieved, the mixture is heated and left to cool on the helmet mold.
This process is labor intensive thus making composite fiber helmets expensive than polycarbonate helmets.
Fiberglass helmet materials are lightweight, inexpensive, strong and flexible at the same time.
They contain a mix of carbon and Kevlar to achieve high-strength characteristic.
Their prices are dependent the composition of carbon or Kevlar weaved in.
During impact, they redistribute the force due to high flexibility across the outer shell.
Carbon fiber helmets are naturally strong due to their naturally occurring carbon atom bonds.
They have extremely great strength, are lighter, great tensile strength thus are excellent at distributing impact force without breaking.
Carbon material can be combined with Kevlar material for extra strength.
They cost a lot more than polycarbonate helmet, are lighter and offer better protection at high speed.
Kevlar helmets are made the same way as fiberglass helmets with an additional plastic compound to boost the strength.
Kevlar has higher tensile strength than fiberglass and polycarbonate helmets.
It is added carbon fiber material to boost its force absorption and redistribution on impact.
Kevlar helmets are lighter than polycarbonate helmets and offer good protection.
What Are The Limitations Of Polycarbonate Helmet?
- They are a bit heavier than those made from composite hence not comfortable for very high speed riding.
- Can easily crush when pressure threshold is exceeded during an impact.
How Do You Test Quality Of Your Polycarbonate Helmet?
Quality of polycarbonate helmet can be tested and confirmed by conducting the following tests:
We know that the purpose of polycarbonate helmet is to shield your head from impact or puncture by foreign objects.
This quality test is done by subjecting the helmet through different impact scenarios and the gravitational force value checked.
If the helmet exceeds a certain set acceleration value, then it fails the quality test.
Chin Bar Test
A chin bar is a safety feature that protect rider’s chin and jaw from impact.
Its quality can be tested by dropping a 5 kg object at its center and measuring the downward deflection distance.
Minimum threshold should not be exceeded for the quality to be accepted.
Position Stability Test
Having a well-fitting polycarbonate helmet will protect you during an impact.
To test for this quality, a head foam is placed into a helmet and adjusted to a certain angle.
An object is dropped from an agreed height and the helmet turn observed.
This is repeated and if the helmet shifts without rolling out, it passes the test.
Shell Penetration Test
This is carried out to check puncturing possibilities of a polycarbonate helmet.
A sharp pointed object with at least 3 kg is dropped from a certain height unto the helmet.
A good quality polycarbonate helmet should not be puncture by the sharp object or show contact with the head internally.
Face Shield Penetration Test
Face shield penetration test is done by shooting soft pellets at 500kph from an air rifle along the centerline at different points.
If the pellets penetrate the face shield the polycarbonate helmet fails quality test.
How Much Does A Polycarbonate Helmet Cost?
The cost of a polycarbonate helmet varies depending on the design of the polycarbonate helmet.
Each design will charge depending on the cost of production and labor hours spent on it.
What Branding Techniques Are Used On Polycarbonate Helmet?
Polycarbonate helmets can be branded in so many ways:
- Use of adhesive stickers to stick on the helmets.
- Digital printing using computerized methods.
Are Polycarbonate Helmet Break Proof?
Polycarbonate helmets can withstand impact force up to a certain magnitude before cracking.
They can provide safety at high speed but are not recommended for aggressive speed sports.
What Is The Manufacturing Process For Polycarbonate Helmet?
Polycarbonate helmets are manufactured through a process known as injection mold process.
This entails heating polycarbonate material at very high temperatures until they turn into liquid form. The liquid polycarbonate material is then poured into a helmet-shaped mold and left to cool and harden into shape.
Polycarbonate helmets can be reshaped through recycling process since no chemical process is involved in their manufacturing.
What Are The Uses Of Polycarbonate Helmet?
- To protect and minimize head injury from accidents when riding.
- Protect against falling objects, road debris, sharp objects, weather conditions, etc.
Is There Standard Size For Polycarbonate Helmet?
Polycarbonate helmet are available in different sizes such as large, medium and small.
This is because there are various users for polycarbonate helmet ranging from kids to adults.
So how do you know that polycarbonate helmet is the right size? When shopping for helmet size you need to look out for the following:
When shopping physically, fit in a polycarbonate helmet, fasten the retention strap and shake your head.
A perfect fit helmet should not move around your head, instead, it should move with your head.
Space Between Head And Shell
The inner layer of polycarbonate helmet is made of an impact absorbing material usually an EPS form. This part of the helmet should be close to your head for a right size helmet.
If the space between your head and the layer can fit a finger, you should consider a smaller helmet.
The final size step when choosing a polycarbonate helmet is hard shell contact test.
A helmet hard shell should not be felt pressing on your head. The helmet should fit okay without being too tight or loose.
In case you are shopping online, ensure you know the dimensions of your helmet before placing your order.
You can do this by measuring your head circumference size just above eyebrows using a tailor’s measuring tape in inches.
Also to note is the shape of your head and indicating in your order placement, different shapes can be accessed online.
When you receive a helmet that does not fit, check with seller if they have return policy and its terms and conditions.
What Is The MOQ For Polycarbonate Helmet?
The minimum order for polycarbonate helmets is 200 pieces, however, you can negotiate for small order for first time order.
Ordering in bulk enables you to get discounted rates on the polycarbonate helmets.
What Quality Control Methods Do Polycarbonate Helmet Manufacturers Adhere To?
Manufacturers of polycarbonate helmets ensure quality control adhering by following the right manufacturing process end-to-end.
They ensure that only polycarbonate materials that pass the quality checks are used in manufacturing of helmets.
During quality testing of polycarbonate helmets, only helmets that passes are released to the market while the rest are reshaped through recycling.
Manufactures also ensure strict adherence to quality standards of manufacturing process for compliance.
