A new blend of recycled polyethylene terephthalate and polycarbonate for automotive bodywork

08-Apr-11
A blend of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polycarbonate (PC) called Makroblend GR 235M is being offered by Bayer MaterialScience. The sustainable high-tech material is suitable for the production of automotive bodywork components. The high-quality material is produced from recycled PET and PC. Makroblend GR 235M’s performance is comparable with virgin materials. Its performance properties matches with that of Makroblend UT 235M, a proven material used in the production of bodywork components. The Makroblend GR 235M can be used for the production of convertible top compartments, covers for antennas, skirts, trunk lids and spoilers. The PET used in the Makroblend GR 235M is obtained by recycling beverage bottles made from high-purity PET grade materials that meet the stringent food industry standards. The PC for the new material is obtained by recycling industrial five-gallon water containers. The Makroblend GR 235M is an ideal replacement for aluminium, sheet steel and sheet mold compounds utilized in bodywork parts. It produces molded parts that eliminate reworking and pre-treatment processes and thus can be coated to make parts with Class A surfaces. It reduces production costs as it supports large production runs and integrated operations. It has better design flexibility and weighs less than metals. The Makroblend GR 235M is strong and has high heat resistance.
