AZP is an innovative transparent resin whose birefringence has been controlled at the molecular level using advanced molecular design technology along with advanced polymerization technology.
AZP has exceptional optical characteristics that have been lacking in transparent resin to date, along with the processability and light weight of resin.
1. Low birefringence
AZP delivers near-zero in-plane retardation (Re) and out-of-plane retardation (Rth), which describe birefringence caused by resin molding, as well as the coefficient of photoelasticity (C), which indicates the magnitude of the effects of birefringence (photoelasticity) caused by stress.
2. Heat resistance. Light resistance, High hardness
AZP is resistant to heat and light, offers excellent shape stability in hot environments, and maintains favorable appearance characteristics even when exposed to ultraviolet light over extended periods of time, AZP can be used in automotive optical components and other parts. In addition, AZP™ offers greater scratch resistance than cyclic olefin polymer (COP) and polycarbonate (PC).
