The basic PPO polymer produced by the coupling of phenolic monomers was patented in 1964 by General Electric Plastics who introduced modified forms as the Noryl® range in 1966. Raw PPO was expensive and difficult to process but blending with polymers such as polystyrene nylon gave an acceptable balance of properties. Most references to PPO refer to such blended polymer products. PPO blended with nylon yields a product with higher water absorption than regular PPO.
PPO thermoplastics offer properties between common thermoplastic polymers and higher engineering types. e.g. polycarbonates. PPO can be moulded by a range of processes such as injection. extrusion and extrusion blow moulding. thermoforming and foaming. Ease of electroplating. painting and welding add to a wide range of applications.
PPO products are characterised by exceptional moisture resistance. high dimensional and thermal stabilities. and good flame resistance and high electrical resistance properties. Noryl® is attacked by petroleum products. so knowing the environment which the Noryl part will be exposed to is vital.
