(Styron) -- Styron announced the launch of its new branched polycarbonate grade for polycarbonate sheet producers in Europe. The new resin allows extruders to produce heavier and more complex multi-wall sheets with enhanced thermal insulation properties.
With the arrival of XZ 94260.00, Styron can now offer extruders a solution for producing high quality multi-wall sheets with thicknesses up to 60 mm. These thicker sheets with an increased number of walls bring better mechanical properties and higher thermal insulation for more energy efficient buildings.
Additionally, XZ 94260.00 offers outstanding surface aesthetics, thanks to its tailored composition.
Styron has a leadership position in its two flagship products, polystyrene and latex. The company has approximately $3.7 billion in revenue (based on 2009 data), with 20 manufacturing sites in all geographic regions.
