Resins

Polyethylene Resins do not require chemical additives.

Raprex(TM) pre-processed resins are formulated to provide improved physical properties without chemical cross linking agents. Radiation processing of base PE resin results in inhomogeneous cross link distribution in polymer. This results in parts that are higher in mechanical properties than unmodified versions. Available in extrusion, injection molding, and film grades, products exhibit tear...

Clear Resin offers more impact strength than polycarbonate.

LEXAN® EXL transparent polymer builds on mechanical properties of standard polycarbonate by incorporating silicone into its molecular structure. Copolymerization produces impact resistance and UV weatherability, while cold-temperature ductility to -40°C allows product to withstand prolonged outdoor exposure. Resin is also available as opaque material.
