The market for electronics, IT and communication devices is constantly evolving with a focus on “what’s next”. Covestro portfolio of polycarbonate resins and blends plays an important role in bringing these next-generation products to the market.

Flame retardance is a key property for materials used in these applications. The requirements of many standards, directives and environmental symbols for flame-retardant thermoplastics used in electronic devices have become more stringent. Bayblend® (PC+ABS; PC+ASA blend) resins aim to satisfy the increased demands.

Grades of Bayblend® FR and flame retardant Makrolon® polycarbonate resin fulfill different flame retardance requirements from V-2 to 5VA in different thickness (IEC 60695-11-10, comparable with U.S. Underwriters Laboratories test standard UL 94).  

In the IT market, the balanced combination of properties – flowability, toughness, heat resistance and flame retardance – makes Bayblend® resin ideally suited for business machines, electrical/electronic and consumer applications, such as computer, monitor, printer and mobile phone housings. Makrolon® polycarbonate grades are successfully used in flat screen TVs, smart phones, tablets, ultrathin notebooks, chargers & adaptors, light guide panels and further applications.
