This information is intended to be used only as a guideline for designers and processors of modified thermoplastics. Because design and processing is
complex, a set solution will not solve all problems. Observation on a “trial and error” basis may be required to achieve desired results.

\
Data are obtained from specimens molded under carefully controlled conditions from representative samples of the compound described herein.
Properties may be materially affected by molding techniques applied and by the size and shape of the item molded. No assurance can be implied that all
molded articles will have the same properties as those listed.
