Bayer has a broad portfolio of polycarbonate
resins, blends and films; thermoplastic polyurethane films; and polyurethane-based adhesives and foams - all formulated for the medical device and healthcare market.
Teijin has other Panlite polycarbonates
achieving UL94 V-0 from 2 mm, and has developed the new grade as part of a strategy to expand its polycarbonate
markets in the electrical and electronics fields, particularly for LEDs and other lighting applications.
First, MRC received UL 94V-0 classifications for four of its Naxell recycled polycarbonates
, including unfilled and 10% glass-filled grades in medium and low viscosities.
Alkalube glyceryl, simple, and complete esters function as internal, external, or intermediate lubricants and flow modifiers for rigid PVC, polycarbonates
, phenolics, acrylics, and nylons.
are important engineering thermoplastics with transparency, heat resistance, and toughness, and are used in many applications.
Applications include engineering resins such as nylons, polycarbonates
, acetals, TPEs, and most commodity resins.

Compositions With Thin-Wall Flame Retardance," Shiping Ma, Thomas Ebeling, and Shrish Rane (General Electric Co., Schenectady, New York, USA).
Company has a new heavy-duty, CFC-free release agent designed specifically to prevent crazing or blemishes on polycarbonates
. Called Polycarbonate
41412, it is odorless and can be used where parts are to be painted, hot-stamped or metallized.
Over the last few months, the company has developed and commercialized Paraloid EXL-5137, a gloss-reducing agent for engineering resins; Paraloid EXL-3657, an MBS-based toughener that dramatically improves the impact strength of polycarbonate
systems; and Paraloid EXL-3361, an acrylic core-shell toughener that provides strong thermal and uv stability to polycarbonate
Alkanox 240 is a solid arylphosphite antioxidant for use in adhesives and a variety of plastics including nylon, polycarbonates
, acrylics, and styrenics.
