Basic Compounds


Depending on the grade, our basic molding compounds differ in their physical properties such as flow and heat deflection temperature under load. They can be processed by means of all conventional thermoplastic processing methods.


PLEXIGLAS® 6N
  • molding compound with good flow and low heat deflection temperature under load
  • Applications: injection molding of thin-walled parts with long flow paths
PLEXIGLAS® 7N
  • molding compound with good flow (somewhat inferior to PLEXIGLAS® 6N) and an adequate heat deflection temperature under load
  • Applications: injection molding of optical and technical items such as nameplates, covers, magnifying glasses, lenses, housewares and many other uses 
PLEXIGLAS® 8N
  • molding compound with a high heat deflection temperature under load. Slightly inferior flow to PLEXIGLAS® 7N
  • Applications: injection molding of technical components to satisfy higher demands on heat deflection temperature under load (e.g. lighting industry, automotive industry (taillights ... ))
PLEXIGLAS® 7H
  • variant of PLEXIGLAS® 7N with higher molecular weight and improved stress crack resistance. Somewhat tougher than PLEXIGLAS® 7N at the same heat deflection temperature under load.
  • Applications: extrusion of profiles and sheets for lighting engineering 
PLEXIGLAS® 7M
  • variant of PLEXIGLAS® 7H with improved flow
  • Applications: extrusion of profiles and sheets for lighting engineering 
PLEXIGLAS® 8H
  • variant of PLEXIGLAS® 8N with higher molecular weight and improved stress crack resistance. Somewhat tougher than PLEXIGLAS® 8N at the same heat deflection temperature under load. 
  • Applications: extrusion of profiles and sheets for lighting engineering
