The Xenoy® resin family offers good chemical resistance, great impact resistance even at low temperatures, heat resistance, and outstanding aesthetic and flow characteristics.
Xenoy® alloys offer outstanding performance in applications that are exposed to harsh conditions, or that require a high degree of toughness.
The Xenoy® alloy is a blend of semi-crystalline polyester (typically polybutylene terephthalate, PBT, or polyethylene terephthalate, PET) and polycarbonate (PC).
New Xenoy® iQ resins are created with polybutylene terephthalate (PBT)-based polymers derived from 60% post-consumer plastic waste, consuming less energy and yielding less carbon dioxide (CO2) in their manufacturing than traditional resins.
Typical applications Xenoy® Resins, power tool housings, electric tooth brushes, torch bodies, car bumpers, car door handles.
Balance of Properties of Xenoy®
Xenoy® has balanced chemical and mechanical properties - amorphous polycarbonate content provides impact resistance, dimensional stability and heat resistance, while the crystalline polyester structure of Xenoy® provides enhanced flow and chemical resistance
Low Temperature Impact Strength of Xenoy®
Xenoy® has a high level of impact strength at temperatures down to -40° C. Impact modification provides both low and high temperature durability.
Weatherability of Xenoy®
Xenoy® grades include UV stabilized formulations for good weatherability
Lubricity of Xenoy®
Xenoy® exhibits smooth part-on-part lubricity for demanding applications
Xenoy® has good Temperature Performance
The heat performance of Xenoy® is sufficient for paint cure up to 130° C.
