CYREX® Acrylic / Polycarbonate

Products

CYREX® is an opaque, acrylic-polycarbonate alloy. When the two components are combined with a proprietary compatabilizer, a synergistic effect is produced resulting in an impact strength that is even higher than polycarbonate. CYREX® alloy maintains the ease of processing associated with acrylic materials. It can be processed at lower temperatures than straight polycarbonate which decreases the cooling time and in turn decrease the cycle time of an injection molding process. It also exhibits a high degree of structural integrity, good heat resistance, good chemical resistance and is gamma resistant.

Applications include:

  • Portable phone and pager housings

  • Consumer products - appliances, toys

  • Automotive components

  • Molded applications, extruded/thermoformed sheet applications

CYREX® Grades:


CYREX® 953

  • Designed for thin walled applications, high impact strength and toughness, very good chemical resistance

CYREX® 200-8000

  • Outstanding impact strength and toughness, very good chemical resistance

CYREX® 200-8005

  • Medical grade: excellent resistance to both alcohol and lipids, resistant to gamma, e-beam and EtO sterilization

CYREX® Protect

  • Medical grade: advanced polymers for antimicrobial medical device applications
