RTP 300 Series Compounds

This data provides comparative information on the shielding performance of standard RTP Company polycarbonate compounds using various combinations of additives and loading levels.

Instead of off-the-shelf solutions, RTP Company routinely develops specialty compounds with a precise combination of properties such as conductivity, flame retardance, structural reinforcement, color, and wear resistance to meet your exact application requirements.

RTP 300 Series
Polycarbonate Compounds

Advantages
  • Creep resistance
  • Toughness
  • Dimensional stability
Limitations
  • Chemical resistance
  • Fatigue endurance

Polycarbonate possesses excellent impact strength, high heat resistance and good dimensional stability. It was one of the first thermoplastics to offer these properties. Polycarbonate is resistant to water and to mineral and organic acids. It is not suitable for contact with aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons or strong alkaline substances.

RTP Company’s EMI 330 FR Series polycarbonate compounds incorporate stainless steel fiber, glass fiber, and/or flame retardant additives. These compounds are UL recognized with a rating of V-0 @ 1/16 inch (1.6 mm).
