The latest example is the addition of three new grades to our polycarbonate blend portfolio. Each new grade is designed to address a specific need.
- Bayblend® T85 XUV PC+ABS blend: This material offers improved long-term UV stability, making it an excellent solution for unpainted interior applications. This new solution, which is available in OEM-trim colors, offers very good overall material performance and fulfills interior emission and odor requirements of the major automotive OEMs.
- Bayblend® T85 XAT PC+ABS blend: This grade is a permanent antistatic PC+ABS for interior applications. Designed for automotive interior trim applications, such as overhead consoles, it helps automakers create dust-free and light-stable surfaces. This material, which is available in OEM trim colors, is a drop-in solution for PC+ASA into existing molds in terms of shrinkage and is a cost-efficient alternative to PC+ASA anti-static grades.
- Makroblend® SR60 PC+PBT blend: Designed for unpainted high-gloss applications, this material offers enhanced scratch and chemical resistance compared with standard materials. When combined with the variothermal process, it is possible to produce both high- and low-gloss surfaces. Beyond aesthetics, it is an economical solution, as well: It offers time and cost savings as no painting is required.
