Attributes

Zelux is Westlake Plastics’ family of Polycarbonate (PC) materials. Zelux is an amorphous transparent engineering thermoplastic with excellent impact resistance, dimensional stability, strength, and rigidity, with service temperatures up to 250F.

Zelux is widely used for electrical housings and structural components since it has excellent insulating properties, toughness and dimensional stability. Because it has excellent optical properties it is commonly used in glazing, barriers, and site glasses where transparency and toughness are important. Zelux machines easily and may be fabricated into complex shapes with close tolerances. Because it is amorphous, it is also easy to weld and glue. It can also be vapor or flame polished for parts that require optical clarity.

Westlake Plastics extrudes and compression molds unfilled and conductive products, and we compression mold glass fiber reinforced grades.
