Lexan film: stamped parts and molded parts

The Dr. D. Müller GmbH is one of the best-known and most specialized processors of Lexan films from Sabic Plastics (formerly GE Plastics). Belong to the specialty of the company Stanzteile, Molded parts, and insulating parts.

Property profile of Lexan films

Lexan films are made from Sabic Lexan polycarbonate granules and have many good properties. The foils are highly impact-resistant, heat-resistant up to approx. 130 ° C and cold-resistant up to approx. -40 ° C, dimensionally stable, insulating, transparent and have a wide variety of surfaces.

The lexan film is available in black or milky white, flame-retardant according to UL94-V0, according to the FDA regulations, and with a scratch-resistant coating. These Polycarbonatfolie can be done with different procedures of the Dr. Dietrich Müller GmbH printing, cutting, punching, gluing, embossing, deep drawing, bending.

The material can be used for displays and nameplates for households, industry, mobile phones, the automotive sector and much more, where the print is protected by the film itself. Lexan is used as a light diffusion film, particularly in the field of LED lighting technology. Lexan film is also often used as a molded insulating part in the field of electrical insulation materials.

There are various special types of Lexan film, which should be presented here in particular:

Lexan-FR Folie als flammwidriges Material

The Lexan FR types are tested according to UL94. All products in this FR series (flame retardant) combine high heat resistance with excellent self-extinguishing and electrical properties. The products are practically universally applicable. The spectrum of applications ranges from graphic applications to insulating part applications to complex three-dimensional shielding. The FR products form a family of flame-retardant polycarbonate films that are available in different surface structures. In combination with copper and aluminum foils, very useful EMC protective parts can be produced.

Lexan-HP Foils

HP films are high-performance, transparent, single-sided coated polycarbonate films. The coated side offers very good chemical and abrasion resistance. The other side can be printed as usual (base film 8010). These properties make HP films suitable for graphic applications. The selection of the right HP type is very dependent on the application.

Lexan-Folie unter dem UL recognized repackaging label

Many customers sell their electric motors, transformers, and lights in the United States. UL certification is usually required for this.

The specialty of the UL certification is the strong focus on individual components and their technical, mechanical and chemical interaction. The primary principle and guiding principle of UL certification is also here to minimize risk for the end user.
There are so-called UL recognized repackagers for the winding industry. These are mostly processors who process the materials produced by the original manufacturers.
This repackaging means that UL basically certifies the products in the containers and in the dimensions in which they leave the respective production facility. If materials are wrapped around, punched or deformed, the UL approval of the respective product becomes invalid
Due to the repackaging approval granted by UL, the Dr. D. Müller GmbH do not process surface insulation materials and laminates with these approvals.
Customers can relax with the UL-approved sheet insulation materials Lexan, Mylar, Nomex, Teonex, Hostaphan relate. In addition, the Dr. D. Müller GmbH has the advantage that UL-approved laminates also retain their certification.
