Xylex® resins are a transparent blend of polycarbonate (PC) and an amorphous polyester.
Compared to PC, the polyester in Xylex® resin provides enhanced chemical resistance against certain fluids, enhancing the resin's stress crack resistance. It also permits lower processing temperatures than straight PC.
Typical applications of Xylex® Resins, mobile phones windows, consumer electronics, bicycle accessories, sports and safety eye wear frames.
Chemical Resistance of Xylex®
Xylex® is resistant to pool and spa chemicals, automotive fluids, alcohols, cleaning fluids, food ingredients, and health & beauty compounds.
High Impact Strength of Xylex®
Xylex® has impact strength similar to polycarbonates.
Clarity of Xylex®
Xylex® is as clear as polycarbonates - almost indistinguishable from standard window glass.
Xylex® grades include UV stabilized formulations, as well as inherently-weatherable polyester resin for outstanding external application life.
High Flow Xylex®
Xylex® shows good mould flow for thin-section parts.
