LG LUPOX PC/PBT

LG LUPOX PC/PBT is a blend of polycarbonate and PBT with a high impact.

LG LUPOX is a family of PBT blends, blended with PET (Polyethylene Teraphthalate), PC and ABS.
PBT is a semi crystalline thermoplastic with excellent properties such as high strength, rigidity, good resistance to fatigue and creep at elevated temperatures.

The wide range portfolio offers products for general purpose, flame retardant (to resist or delay fire from spreading), glass fiber reinforced, food contact etc.

Where impact and chemical resistance both are needed LUPOX PC/PBT can be used. The impact also remains at low temperatures.

LG LUPOX PC/PBT also can be used where toughness and resistance to environmental stress cracking from fuels and lubricating fluids is required.

The PC contributes to impact, stiffness and heat resistance, while the PBT contributes to chemical resistance.

Parts made with PC/PBT are generally unsuitable for thinner wall sections, as the material does not flow well enough for very thin wall design.
The shrinkage varies based upon the ratio of PC and PBT, so where the tool is designed for a specific grade, it can be difficult to substitute for other polymers.
