Plastim Noryl

Noryl

Overview

The NORYL family of modified PPE resins consists of amorphous blends of PPO™ resin (polyphenylene ether) and polystyrene. They combine the inherent benefits of PPO resin (affordable high heat resistance, good electrical properties, excellent hydrolytic stability and the ability to use non-halogen FR packages), with excellent dimensional stability, good processibility and low specific gravity. NORYL resins offer a good balance of mechanical and chemical properties, and may be suitable for a wide variety of applications.

Benefits:

High dimensional stability.
Low tendency to creep.
High thermo-stability.
High impact strength.
Good electrical characteristics over a wide frequency range.
High resistance to hydrolysis.
Self-extinguishing.

Weaknesses:

Not resistant to some hydrocarbons.

Applications:

It can be precision machined for intricate components with tight tolerances and is one of the most commonly used engineering plastics for mechanical applications such as:
Electrical engineering.
Household utensils.
Gear wheels.
Shafts.
Parts in hydrolysis.
