Arnite® AV2 390 XL

50% Glass Reinforced

General Information

Arnite® (PBT, PET and blends) are high-performance engineering plastics that combine high strength and rigidity with excellent processing characteristics. As a result, Arnite® A (PET)  and Arnite® T (PBT) are well suited for a broad range of automotive, electrical & electronic and consumer goods applications.
A wide portfolio of Arnite® is available including unreinforced, reinforced and flame retardant grades.

Applications

Bezels and AFL Frames

Industry
Automotive
  • <ul> <li>Arnite® XL allows for 40-50% lighter weight solutions versus metal</li> <li>Arnite® XL allows for reliable solutions due to its very low outgassing behaviour ensuring good long term road visibility, its high dimensional stability (as compared to PA) resulting in less beam vibration (enabling switch to LED/Xenon and AFL/DBL)</li> <li>Arnite® XL allows for cost effective solutions as compared with PPS and PPA</li> </ul>
