PERTIES. BETTER PERFORMANCE PPE + PS


A standard thermoplastic, PPE is usually only used after being modified by the addition of PS and reinforced with glass fiber. The material provides for high strength, hardness and rigidity with low moisture adoption. Due to its excellent dimensional stability and impact strength, it is suitable for components that face high levels of stress, like electronics.


APPLICATION EXAMPLES: Electronic equipment like Printer cartridges, Housing equipment


PC


Glass-reinforced polycarbonate is finding principal applications in designs where metals, particularly die-cast aluminium and zinc, are commonly used. The addition of glass fibers to polycarbonate in various amounts (10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) increases tensile strength, stiffness, compressive strength, and lowers the thermal expansion coefficient. GF PC has excellent impact resistance and dimensional stability and is tougher than most plastics.


APPLICATION EXAMPLES: Impact shields, Electrical components, Scientific and analytical instruments, Fluid-handling components.


PA


Polyamides are polymers containing monomers of amides, joined by peptide bonds. Polyamides have excellent impact strength and notch impact strength, very high chemical resistance and excellent stress cracking resistance.


APPLICATION EXAMPLES: Bearings, Automotive parts ABS


ABS is a thermoplastic co-polymerisate made from acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene monomers. ABS types with different combinations have a wide range of properties. ABS is extra tough, offers high strength and hardness, a high degree of chemical resistance, is virtually scratch-proof and has excellent machining properties.


APPLICATIONS: Carbon filaments in cables, Mirror housings, Hair dryers, Housing components, Musical instruments.
