We can facilitate your success by customizing a high performance shape that meets your application’s critical needs.
Absylux is Westlake’s family of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). The material is an economical all-purpose engineering plastic exhibiting good dimensional stability, impact strength, and stiffness. It is FDA Compliant in natural (beige) and black for food applications. Absylux is a popular choice for prototyping parts where low volumes and easy machining are required.
Cylux is Westlake Plastics’ family of cyclic olefin materials. They are new and unique materials combining highly sought-after transparency/optical clarity with chemical resistance and low moisture absorption. This product also offers a wide range of regulatory compliances which make it ideal as a newer option in the food process industry.
Lennite is Westlake Plastics’ family of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene products (UHMWPE). This semi-crystalline, opaque white thermoplastic is known for its excellent abrasion and wear resistance and low coefficient of friction (COF). Westlake Plastics ram extrudes Lennite specifically for use in long term orthopedic implant applications.
Norylux is Westlake Plastics’ family of Poly Phenylene Oxide (PPO). This high strength amorphous engineering thermoplastic offers outstanding mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties along with low moisture absorption and low thermal expansion, making it one of the most dimensionally stable thermoplastics available.
Propylux is Westlake Plastic’ family of polypropylene resins. This semi-crystalline, opaque off-white thermoplastic offers broad chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, hydrolysis resistance, and toughness. Westlake Plastics manufactures Propylux across several product sub-families including Propylux DS, Propylux VF, Propylux HS, Propylux HS2, Propylux SD-A, Propylux CN-P and Proplyux CN-F.
Westlake’s Radel stock shapes are made exclusively from Solvay’s Radel Polyphenylsulfone (PPSU). This transparent, amorphous thermoplastic material exhibits toughness, strength, and stiffness over a broad range of end-use temperatures from -40°C to 204°C (-40°F to 400°F). Radel exhibits resistance to a wide range of chemicals and offers good hydrolytic stability.
Stryon is Westlake Plastics’ family of Polystryene (PS). Stryon is a versatile material used to make a wide variety of consumer products. Stryon CL is a hard, solid plastic, often used in products that require clarity, such as food packaging and laboratory ware. Stryon HI is the high-impact version that is opaque and used to make components such as appliances, electronics, automobile parts, toys, gardening pots and equipment and more.
Tempalux is Westlake Plastics’ family of Polyetherimide (PEI) materials. Tempalux is an amorphous material offering a combination of useful characteristics, including high dielectric strength, high strength at elevated temperatures (up to 180C for extended periods of time), high modulus, and broad chemical resistance.
Thermalux is Westlake’s family of sulfone polymers. These amorphous thermoplastics are known for their toughness and stability at broad range of end-use temperatures from -40°C to 204°C (-40°F to 400°F). Three types of Thermalux are commercially available: polysulfone (PSU), polyethersulfone (PESU), and polyphenylsulfone (PPSU).
TPX Polymethylpentene (PMP) is a unique crystalline thermoplastic known to have the lowest density of any commercial grade polymer available at 0.82 g/cc. Its typical color is a semi-opaque milky white, however Westlake Plastics can now offer this material in transparent grade in thinner gauges.
Zelux is Westlake Plastics’ family of Polycarbonate (PC) materials. Zelux is a transparent engineering thermoplastic with excellent dimensional stability, strength, and rigidity, with service temperatures up to 250F. Westlake offers standard machine and window grades. Additionally, we have developed grades for Life Science applications and to meet specific dielectric requirements.
