Impact Testing

The impact resistance (puncture energy at max load, ASTM D3763 for 3-mm sheet at 70°F) of SUN-DECOR™ copolyester (53 ft/lb) is about 18 times that of general purpose acrylic (PMMA) (3 ft/lb) and about twice that of impact modified acrylic (PMMA) (26 ft/lb).

Flammability Comparison

SUN-DECOR™ copolyester has passed the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 286 flammability test required by regional and national building codes. Its durability and resilience, combined with the industry’s overall acceptance, prove Spectar to be the ideal material solution for the building and construction industry.

Sheet fabrication

SUN-DECOR™ copolyester resin extrudes into PETG sheet that is versatile and easy to work with, making it ideally suited for use in demanding sheet applications. The toughness (impact strength) and durability of Spectar allows downgauging, translating to lower unit costs and reduced shipping costs, as well as less breakage.

Processing benefits:

• Eliminate surface whitening
• Reduce heat bend time by up to 25%
• Bond with UV curable adhesives for almost instant cure time
• Form clear, strong bonds with commercially available solvents and cements

Thermoforming advantages:

• Vacuum form without pre-drying
• Improve thermoforming cycle by up to 20%
• Gain a wider thermorforming temperature window
• Achieve deeper draws
• Attain uniform material distribution

Fabricating advantages:

• Cold-bend without stress-whitening
• Guillotine/die-cut and laser cut
• Saw, route and drill without chipping
• Weld by heat, friction, ultrasonic or RF/HF
• Remove surface scratches with hot air gun
• Diamond polish
• Join by screws, rivets, bolts or adhesives
• Screen print, paint and hot stamp
