Rexolite is a unique cross linked polystyrene microwave plastic made. Two different forms are available; Rexolite® 1422 and Rexolite® 2200. (2200 is a fiberglass reinforced version of 1422).
Ideal for microwave lenses, microwave circuitry, antennae, coaxial cable connectors, sound transducers, television satellite dishes and sonar lenses. Other applications include nondestructive material testing devices, surveillance equipment, radar windows, radomes and missile guidance system housings.
Rexolite has the ability to withstand high voltage is important for producing gap switch houses, capacitors and other components.
Rexolite® is proven superior to Acrylics, Epoxies, Urethanes and other plastics for dendriting resistance. (Failure caused by electron bombardment).
Superior to most plastics.
Handles well in all machining operations. Tool configuration is similar to those used on Acrylic. Due to high resistance to cold flow and freedom from stress, it is easily machined or laser beam cut to very close tolerances. Accuracies of .0001 can be obtained by grinding. Crazing can be avoided by using sharp tools and avoiding excessive heat during polishing. Stress relieving is not required before, during of after machining.
