PLEXIGLAS® Heatresist & PLEXIMID®
HIGHER HEAT DEFLECTION TEMPERATURE UNDER LOAD
Products of the PLEXIGLAS® Heatresist and PLEXIMID® groups are crystal-clear molding compounds with different heat deflection temperatures under load.
PLEXIGLAS® Heatresist FT15
PLEXIGLAS® Heatresist FT15 is a molding compound based on PMMA with a higher heat deflection temperature under load (Vicat softening temperature: 115 °C) combined with improved flow.
PLEXIGLAS® Heatresist FT15 is particularly suitable for injection-molding and extrusion applications with stringent requirements in terms of heat deflection temperature and flow. The special property profile offers benefits particularly when it comes to designing moldings with challenging wall thickness / flow path ratios (e. g. multi-component injection molding).
PLEXIGLAS® Heatresist hw55
PLEXIGLAS® Heatresist hw55 is a copolymer based on methyl methacrylate (MMA) with comonomer constituents. These provide a high heat deflection temperature under load for a PMMA molding compound, combined with ease of processing.
PLEXIGLAS® Heatresist hw55 is particularly suited for injection-molded technical parts for applications to high thermal stress.
PLEXIMID® TT50 and TT70
Polymethyl methacrylimide (PMMI) with a high heat deflection temperature that is especially suitable for high-temperature applications such as headlamp lenses, drum lenses and in-built furniture lighting. Besides their high transmission and clarity and excellent strength and rigidity, these specialty molding compounds offer extremely stable optical values after log-term exposure to heat.
