TECANYL® black (Noryl EN 265)

polyphenylene oxide

​TECANYL PPE black, (made with Noryl® EN265) due to its inherent chemical composition, exhibits unusually low moisture absorption. Therefore, good electrical insulating properties are realized over a wide range of humidity and temperature conditions. Chemical attack from water, most salt solutions, acids and bases is also minimal with TECANYL. The addition of glass fiber reinforcement enhances both the mechanical and thermal properties of the basic TECANYL material. Made from Sabic Noryl® EN265 resin.
