GE Plastics has a new portfolio of high flow Noryl PPO resins that can compete with flame-retardant HIPS, PVC, flame-retardant ABS and PC/ABS.

“We believe we can save the customer time and money by making our resin higher flow, which (along with the inherent thermal diffusivity of Noryl resin) decreases cycle time, resulting in more parts per hour,” says Michael Gross, product commercialization leader with GE Plastics.

Noryl can further decrease cycle times because its high modulus allows the part to be ejected from the mold at higher temperatures and maintain stiffness. GE Plastics also reports that Noryl cools more quickly than most other resins.

The backbone of the new portfolio is Noryl PX5622, with flow that is reportedly 20 percent better than competitive high-flow flame-retardant PC/ABS. It is targetted for television housings, electrical boxes and set top boxes.
