Bayer MaterialScience LLC said its new class of polycarbonate/polyester resins doesn't rely on brominated or chlorinated additives or heavy metals.
The Pittsburgh-based firm says Makroblend EC grades now available are unfilled materials with a balance of flame resistance, toughness, chemical resistance and dimensional stability.
They provide improved fire-resistant protection and compliance with global environmental standards, according to Bayer MaterialScience. Grades are available in ultraviolet-stabilized versions.
The Makroblend EC series has received Germany's Blue Angel certification for products that are environmentally friendly. They are also compliant with the European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances and Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment directives.
