Teonex Q51 | PEN-Folie
PEN - Folie
Polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) resin became popular in various fields after the American company Amoco Chemicals began commercial production of naphthalenedicarboxylic acid (NDC), a raw material of PEN, in 1995.
In 1964, 31 years earlier, Teijin began developing PEN and launched it as Teonex®. Since then, Teonex® has been popular as a functional material for industrial parts and packaging materials for food and medicines and is constantly expanding its area of application.
Teonex® is a crystalline thermoplastic polyester, a polycondensate of NDC as the acid component and ethylene glycol as the glycol component, manufactured in a process similar to that of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a typical polyester.
The property of Teonex® is considered to be better than that of PET.
Teonex® is a crystalline, slowly crystallizing resin that facilitates the shaping of transparent molded products.
Teonex® has superior chemical and scratch resistance compared to polycarbonate (PC), a typical polymer used in transparent molded products.
Teonex is also processed into foils.
what is Teonex® Q51?
Teonex® Q51 is a biaxially oriented PEN film (polyethylene naphthalate film) with low haze. The film has excellent properties such as very good mechanical strength, good physical properties, low moisture absorption, high dielectric strength and good heat and cold properties. It is also resistant to common solvents.
Teonex® Q51 polyethylene naphthalate film has a higher temperature resistance than standard PET films, which means that it is listed as class F (155 °) insulating material. In addition, the PEN film meets the UL 94 VTM-2 standard and is RoHS-compliant according to 2011 / EU.
Areas of application for Teonex® Q51
Teonex® Q51 is used in the manufacture of electric motors and transformers, where it is used as an insulating layer.
Delivery forms of Teonex Q51
Teonex® Q51 has a roll width of up to 1,000 mm and is manufactured in graduated thicknesses from 12 µm to 250 µm.
Further processing of Teonex® Q51 – PEN film
Teonex® Q51 can be further processed very easily. We can manufacture laminates, adhesive tapes, roll goods and punched parts from this PEN film.
Stamped parts from PEN foil
PEN foil can be processed with all existing punching techniques. Die-cut parts made of PEN foil can be delivered as individual parts, on a roll, in a magazine or stacked.
Adhesive tapes can also be made from PEN films. The film can be feathered like polyester film, so that feathered PEN film can also be supplied.
