The company further notes that most traditional clear materials were not suitable, as they lacked either ductility or chemical resistance, or both.
While reducing the tensile modulus and strength, the addition of 20 wt% of impact modifiers does improve the ductility (strain at failure) of the blend.
4) shows a dramatic reduction in hardness, which would indicate a corresponding reduction in unwanted carbides and an increase in ductility.
Tyrin is used as a component in vinyl siding and window profiles, its increased ductility rendering it less brittle when cold, says DuPont Dow, thus enabling builders to extend the construction season in colder climates.
Errera said the total crash energy management capabilities of steel surpasses that of competing materials because of steel's ductility and strength, particularly under impact loads.
With conventional materials, like cast iron, "one typically has a long experience base" through which a material's general properties, such as melting point, conductivity and ductility, become known, explains Steiner, a member of the VAMAS steering committee.
The results demonstrated excellent runability on conventional equipment, and corroborated the Company's previous lab tests showing the additive's ability to increase a plastic's strength, while improving ductility and flexibility.
The steering wheel and instrument panel with integrated airbag chute are injection molded of Lexan EXL PC-silicone copolymer for high ductility at low temperature, and the front fenders are Noryl GTX PPO/nylon alloy.

These are material characteristics commonly associated with ductile metals like mild steel and are the central difference between ECC materials designed for tensile ductility and tight crack widths and traditional concrete materials which are designed for compressive strength.
Squeeze casting can produce castings with improved ductility and higher tensile properties than conventional high pressure diecasting due to reduced porosity.
While offering the strength, mechanical qualities, and clarity of other Lexan PC products, these materials are also said to show improvements to flow and ductility, and enhance resistance to impact and autoclave sterilization.
