Lexan 500 - It Replaces Metals 710101

Lexan 500 is a new polycarbonate grade that was developed to meet market needs for a material combining the strength and durability of metals with lighter weight, design flexibilities, and processing economics of plastics. Lexan 500 has a high impact strength, an excellent dimensional stability, a low coefficient of thermal expansion, and a low water absorption rate.
Lexan 500 can be used as a metal replacement in areas where designers can take advantage of the benefits of a structurally rigid thermoplastic without sacrificing impact strength, with added advantages of reduced processing costs and elimination of costly secondary finishing and assembly operations.
Lexan 500 is particularly suited to applications requiring high dimensional stability and the ability to mold easily to close tolerances while maintaining excellent surface appearance.
