Polyplastics Co., Ltd., Tokyo, Japan, has announced its slate of laser welding grades that includes DURANEX PBT and DURACON POM.

DURANEX PBT is a cost-balanced resin that exhibits excellent heat resistance, moldability and electrical properties for housings. The company has optimized its DURANEX PBT family by re-examining the rubber content, together with its compounding agents, to develop DURANEX PBT 730LW, which enables laser welding of workpieces as thick as 2mm.

DURACON POM exhibits excellent light transmissibility, even when compared to other semi-crystalline engineering plastics. It also has a low melting point that allows the laser output required for welding to be kept low. Polyplastics released DURACON POM M90LP, which uses pigments that do not inhibit laser transmissibility.
