Product Description
ASTALON™ N5+ is a clear, flame retardant polycarbonate grade with standard medium viscosity (medium melt flow) in the ASTALON™ range. It is designed to meet the stringent UL94 V-0 rating while still keeping very high clarity and many other features of polycarbonate. N5+ is suited to injection moulding applications which require a mould release agent. N5+ offers an exceptional combination of flame retardancy, transparency, toughness, heat resistance and processability, typical applications include computer and electrical appliances.

Note: [ Suffix "+" = R for mould release or "+" =UR for UV stabilised for improved weatherability]
