The ideal balance of dimensional stability, strength and moisture resistance.
While many amorphous thermoplastics lose strength at elevated temperatures, Noryl PPO retains its rigidity, impact strength and dimensional stability — even at 230°F continuous use. This balance of properties, coupled with inherent moisture and chemical resistance, makes it ideal for a wide range of electrical insulation components.
For added strength and stiffness, Noryl PPO can be reinforced with glass fiber fill. The material is easily machined, available in stock shapes, and can be thermoformed.
