Looking for a thermoplastic that can beat the heat? Whether used in parts for automotive, electronics, industrial lighting, medical technology or other applications, Apec® the high-heat polycarbonate from Covestro has what you’re looking for.

Apec® High Heat Polycarbonate
Apec® high-heat polycarbonate

This linear, amorphous copolycarbonate is most suitable for applications that must withstand high temperatures and exhibit toughness, impact resistance and high transparency. Apec® can also be utilized over a broad range of temperatures, from approximately -30ºC to approximately +200ºC.

These properties, along with good dimensional stability, weatherability and flowability, allow Apec® to be utilized as a replacement for glass, metal or standard polycarbonate in high-heat applications.

Thus, Apec® unique features facilitates a high level of design freedom and a broad processing range. The material is processed primarily via injection molding and is available in clear, transparent, opaque and specialty colored formats to further stretch design limits.

Apec® also enables versatility by offering several homogenized copolycarbonate grades, including those with ultraviolet stability and flame retardance. Flame-retardant grades are in compliance with UL 94’s V-0 rating at 1.5 mm thickness.

In hospitals, on the road or in other high-heat applications, Apec® resin offers proven performance that can take the heat.
