Noryl PPO

Engineering Plastic

NORYL (PPO) Engineering Plastic

Noryl PPO (modified polyphenylene oxide) is manufactured from Noryl® resin. A combination of low moisture absorption and low thermal expansion make the material one of the most dimensionally stable thermoplastics available today. Noryl PPO is used widely in products such as structural components and electrical housings due to the materials excellent insulating characteristics over a wide range of temperatures in service. The thermoplastic is also used in fluid handling applications as it has low moisture absorption.


Noryl PPO offers high dielectric strength with low moisture absorption. With excellent impact strength, the plastic also offers thermal and long term dimensional stability. We not only stock Noryl PPO but also process your material in-house.

Typical Applications

Commercial applications for this engineering material include:

  • Medical devices
  • Manifolds
  • Pumps & valves
  • Electrical components
  • Fluid handling applications
  • Housings

We stock Noryl (PPO) in round bar, plate, sheet, round tube and hollow bar.
