Apec®

This linear, amorphous copolycarbonate is most suitable for applications that must withstand high temperatures and exhibit toughness, impact resistance and high transparency. Apec® can also be utilized over a broad range of temperatures, from approximately -30ºC to approximately +200ºC.

Industries

These properties, along with good dimensional stability, weatherability and flowability, allow Apec® to be utilized as a replacement for glass, metal or standard polycarbonate in high-heat applications. In hospitals, on the road or in other high-heat applications, Apec® resin offers proven performance that
can take the heat.
