Cycoloy—What Is It?
Cycoloy® Resins are Amorphous PC/ABS blends. Depending on your needs, Cycoloy® offers a full range of resins. These resins have excellent processability, superior mechanical properties and good heat resistance. Additionally, Cycoloy® has excellent UV stability, high impact resistance, chrome plating application and good paint and foam adhesion.
Frequently used with a metal layer, this material offers extremely low stress and superior adhesion qualities. Plating plastic components avoids the expense of secondary operations including milling and polishing. They also help companies like automakers easily incorporate jewel-bright chrome details into their designs. Cycoloy® is also a lightweight plastic that helps with improved fuel economy when used in automotive applications.
