PLEXIGLAS® Resist

Products of the PLEXIGLAS® Resist family are amorphous, impact-modified thermoplastic molding compounds. These impact-modified PMMA grades are used when applications require the benefits of PMMA in combination with improved crack resistance.

Typical properties of impact-modified PLEXIGLAS® molding compounds are:

  • high weather resistance
  • excellent transmission and clarity
  • brilliant appearance
  • the pleasant feel and sound of the moldings

The PLEXIGLAS® Resist family provides a wide range of impact PMMA grades. Depending on the basic molding compound, the impact-modified grades differ in their key properties, such as optimized flow or stress crack resistance. They are suitable for extruding and coextruding profiles and sheets as well as for injection molded formed parts.

PLEXIGLAS® Resist products can cover two different effects:

Impact performance during application

  • During mechanical impact the rubber domains absorb energy
  • Stop of crack propagation as micro-cracks are stopped when they reach a rubber domain

Effect as processing aid

  • Screw feeding performance becomes more homogenous
  • Good demolding properties during injection molding
  • During extrusion and post treatment: Smooth cutting of edges and no chipping during drilling
