AX series (Opaque chemical-resistant grade)

AX series resins are opaque polymer alloys with a high deflection temperature under load without reinforcement and a chemical resistance as high as those of crystalline resins. They are excellent in moldability and provide molded products fewer in the number of sink marks, warps, and run-offs.

Characteristics
• Nonreinforced heat resistance:   Deflection temperature under load without reinforcement:
1.8 MPa at 150°C
• Chemical resistance:  As high as those of polyamide resins, except alkali resistance
• Adhesiveness: Chemical resistance and adhesiveness as high as those of crystalline resins
• Lubrication:  As high as those of polyamide resins
• Molding accuracy: Fewer in the number of sink marks and warps, and lower
(less than 1/3) in water absorption than polyamide resins
