LEXAN CXT film has a glass transition temperature of 196°C, which opens a wide manufacturing window to meet the required dimensional stability in thermally more demanding processes where higher process temperatures are required.
SABIC is presenting an innovative new transparent high-heat LEXAN™ CXT film product at the IDTechEx show in California. The new polycarbonate (PC) based technology combines superior optical clarity and high design flexibility with excellent thermal and dimensional stability at elevated process temperatures. The material was specially developed to provide a high-performance and cost-efficient solution for substrates in the rapidly growing flexible printed electronics market as well as for other applications exposed to high processing and/or in-use temperatures. The new high-performance thermoplastic film product has successfully passed both internal comparative testing and strict customer evaluation trials, and will be commercially available worldwide.
