zelux Zelux® M stress relieved rod and heavy gauge sheet products can be machined into a wide variety of parts that offer Makrolon MGdimensional stability at temperatures from -40°F to 280°F. All non-reinforced:  Zelux® M products are virtually unbreakable, making them extremely safe when exposed to heavy impact.  Zelux® i products tend to cold form rather than shatter, when subjected to repeated heavy blows. Stress Relieving: All  Zelux® M rod and heavy gauge sheet are stress relieved for close tolerance machining and dimensionally stable parts.  Zelux® polycarbonate is an engineering plastic with excellent dimensional stability and good strength and stiffness over a wide range of service temperatures. Zelux® is often used for structural applications when clarity and impact strength are essential including lenses, manifolds, site glasses, and machine guards. Zelux® is used for a wide variety of electrical applications since it has low moisture absorption, good insulating properties, and an excellent flammability rating. Zelux® is easy to fabricate, paint, and glue.
