They include amorphous polymers such as polystyrene (PS), high impact polystyrene (HIPS), polycarbonate (PC), acetal (POM), PC/ABS, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polyphenylene oxide (PPO), Noryl (a miscible blend of PS and PPO) and PC/PETG.

Conventional baluns may also be molded of polyphenylene oxide.
Four neat resins are considered: the two amorphous polymers bisphenol-A polycarbonate (PC) and polyetherimide (PEI); poly(butylene terephthalate) (PBT), a semicrystalline polymer; and modified polyphenylene oxide (M-PPO), which is a blend of the amorphous polymer polyphenylene oxide and high-impact polystyrene.
In this ease, the material is a thin polyphenylene oxide thermoplastic with a dielectric constant of approximately 2.78 at 1.5 GHz.
Researchers at GE Plastics have monitored polyphenylene oxide roofing panels on their research house in Pittsfield, MA, over the past five years and are now working with suppliers to commercialize products.
The Braude ranges of chemical transfer pumps are manufactured in Noryl (a polyphenylene oxide - registered trade name of General Electric Company USA), which is a high strength non-corrodable material with an exceptionally high resistance to creep, good dimensional stability and thermal properties.
The company says that they offer "excellent adhesion to several back-sheet materials such as polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and also adhere to junction box materials such as polyphenylene oxide (PPO) and polycarbonate.
"Noryl polyphenylene oxide (PPO) and Valox polybutadiene terephthalate (PBT) resins from Sabic Innovative Plastics are excellent choices for battery components, including frames and housings.
Sabic Innovative Plastics, one of the world's largest manufacturers of plastics, produces a range of products including Lexan (a popular polycarbonate alternative) and noryl (polyphenylene oxide) at its Bergen op Zoom plant.
