Facts About NORYL® (PPO)
NORYL® modified (PPO) polyphenylene oxide has the ability to perform at high and low temperatures- as low as -40°F and as high as 265°F under load. High electrical strength and low moisture absorption also contribute to Noryl’s added value and predicted mechanical strength over a wide range of temperatures. This material is produced in four different grades, each with distinguishing qualities such as an expanded range of strength, toughness and heat resistance that can suit a variety of needs.
Key Features of NORYL®
- Premium performance and a UL V-1 rating
- Excellent machinability when stress relieved
- Outstanding thermal & electrical properties
- High resistance to creep
- Long term dimensional stability
- Outstanding hydrolytic stability
- FDA approved
Key Applications of NORYL®
NORYL® is utilized in a variety of applications but since it is FDA approved, it is commonly used in water distribution along with some usage in the medical field. Water softener valves, pump parts, and beverage dispenser components are manufactured with this material due to its low moisture absorption qualities. Just like many of the other high- performance plastics, NORYL is chosen to make medical utensils, trays, basins and vaporizers. All of these selected applications point to Noryl’s innate ability to function in moist environments with exposure to a variety of different liquids without losing any key functions.
