Material Notes:
Excellent moldability, High clarity, Extended toughness and elongation, meets USP XXI specification for Class VI Plastics, Property retention after gamma irradiationApplications: Display, medical devices, Office accessories, Small appliances, Break resistant CD jewel boxes, ToysInjection Speed: Slow to moderateAll molded samples were an 1/8 inch thick unless noted.General information about ZYLAR®: ZYLAR® acrylic copolymers are The Clear Alternative to polycarbonate, PETG, impact acrylic and clear ABS for applications that demand clarity and toughness and enhanced processing productivity. ZYLAR is a cost effective alternative in injection molding applications, with over 15 years of proven performance.ZYLAR has proven performance in a variety of applications, including medical, floor care, appliances, consumer goods, office accessories and supplies, pens and mechanical pencils, commercial paper towel dispensers, point of purchase displays, cosmetics packaging, toys, electronics packaging, housewares, consumer & industrial, and other applications.ZYLAR® acrylic copolymers provide value through enhanced performance, manufacturing productivity, ease of processing, and potential for capital avoidance through utilization of existing (styrenics) equipment and tooling.Performance Attributes: Crisp clarityOutstanding practical toughness and ductilityBalance of toughness and clarity Easily decorated Can be printed, hot stamped or metalized.Gamma, Eto and E-beam sterilizableCan be bonded to flexible PVCAlcohol and lipid resistanceResistance to most industrial and commercial cleanersResistance to most household cleanersResistant to most food additivesResidential dishwasher safe - top rackSecondary operations include sonic welding, hotplate welding, ultrasonic bonding and adhesive bondingOver-molding capabilityProduct CapabilitiesAntistatic and indoor UV grades availableAvailable in natural and pre-coloredColor matching capabilitiesCustomer Productivity & Processing5 to 25% density advantage means more parts per pound of resinFaster cycle timeReduced energy and labor costs associated with processing Lower processing temperatures by as much as 150FNo drying Styrenic processingBetter thermal stabilityMore usable regrind and no black specsProduct consistency, color consistency Easily colored at the pressEasy flowAble to utilize existing tooling for PC, clear ABS, impact acrylic, PETG, polyesters, propionate (CAP), PVC and other polymersInformation provided by NOVA Chemicals.This specific grade was discontinued prior to the Styrolution acquision of the Zylar® product line.
