Bayfol® Polycarbonate Blend Films
Bayfol® is the brand name for our blend films made from polycarbonate and other engineering thermoplastics such as ABS. The transparent, translucent and opaque blend films have strengths including high heat resistance, impressive stiffness, good electrical insulation properties and excellent printability. Depending on which thermoplastic is blended with the polycarbonate, benefits can include better resistance to chemicals, greater elasticity and enhanced dynamic strength. Bayfol® also allows for easy hot and cold forming processes. Specific product groups are available for our customers depending on their intended Bayfol® application.
Bayfol® has been developed into groups based on applications. These include:
AS-A, is an anti-static, black-colored film made from a PC/PBT blend. Due to its anti-static properties this film is suitable for the packaging of electronic components.
CR/CREC, Bayfol® CR is a blend film of polycarbonate and polyester. This grade has outstanding cold-forming properties, e.g. by high-pressure forming and has become established in the film insert molding (FIM) decoration process. The grade has excellent chemical resistance and flexibility. This makes the it an optimum choice for producing film keypads and membrane switches.
Excellent for Membrane Switch Overlays
Bayfol® polycarbonate film allows actuation life of 3 million cycles. Easy to die cut and emboss, it offers improved chemical resistance and increased formability.
