TOPAS Advanced Polymers has expanded its line of TOPAS 5013 cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) resins for injection molding of high-performance components for the optical, diagnostic, and microfluidic markets. The new grade, TOPAS 5013L-10, has won strong early acceptance because it features an internal mold release which delivers an exceptional balance of properties and easy processing.
The new product features exceptional clarity, high flow, and a heat deflection temperature of 127°C. It is characterized by the highest level of flowability among transparent resins without loss of material strength and optical characteristics. The material’s low melt viscosity permits the production of ultrathin light guide plates unachievable with conventional materials. These plates are ideal for displays in mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.
