Building and Construction

Polycarbonate Film/Sheet & Moldings

  • Polycarbonate (PC) is increasingly used in the building & construction and lighting markets.
  • PC has one main limiting feature which holds back its use from a wider range of applications in these markets; the ability to meet the industry FR standards in "thin" transparent parts.
  • Nofia® products have the proven ability to achieve the most stringent FR specifications at a thickness of 0.75mm while maintaining full transparency and excellent melt flow.
    • Thin wall moldings such as sight glasses or in or windows systems that require FR.      

Target Polymer Systems

  • Polycarbonate

Lighting Components & Fixtures

  • Nofia® PC Copolymers offer a solution to the current limitations of PC in thin, transparent FR applications by offering fully transparent UL94 V0 flame retardant grades as thin as 0.75mm thick.
  • Nofia® PC Copolymers also have two times better melt flow index than typical PC grades which enables more detailed and complex shapes.

Potential applications include:

  • Metal replacement in lighting and HVAC fixtures,
  • Light diffusion panels in LEDs,
  • Interior glass replacement (glazing),
  • Dust covers for aircraft windows,
  • Lenses for lighting fixtures (esp. metal halide lamps),
  • Lighting components (LED
