Styron introduces new speciality resin

September 17/2010

(PlastEurope) -- "Emerge PC8701HH resin, developed for the terminal block, case and internal parts of smart meters, has been introduced in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region by Styron. The terminal block, which has direct contact with live wires, must withstand temperatures of up to 960 C, while the casing of the meter needs to be tamper-resistant in order to prevent fraud.


The meters enable consumers to monitor their energy use and increase their energy efficiency. PC 8701HH resin is a glass-reinforced ignition-resistant polycarbonate that is claimed to offer heat resistance exceeding current standards and industry requirements. The use of one product for the different parts simplifies the production process for smart meter producers, Styron says, and can lead to reduced costs.
