Noryl Samples

TitleNoryl Samples
Object NameNoryl Samples
Manufactured ByGeneral Electric Plastics
DescriptionNoryl is a blend of polyphenylene oxide (PPO) and polystyrene (PS) that was developed by General Electric Plastics in 1966. It is a rare example of a homogeneous mixture of the two polymers. Most polymers are incompatible with one another, so tend to produce separate phases when mixed. The compatibility of the two polymers in Noryl is caused by the presence of a benzene ring in the repeat units of both chains. Noryl has numerous applications in electronics, electrical equipment, coating, machinery, etc. Its notable properties include H\high stiffness and tensile & flexural strength, even at elevated temperatures, with only gradual reduction as temperature is increased.
