Abstract

Aromatic polyesters or polyarylates have become an important class of high performance thermoplastic resins. Polymers based on bisphenol A with a mixture of isophthalic and terephthalic acids (APE) have been commercially available since the early 1970’s when Unitika first commercialized its U-Polymer in Japan. Since that time, other companies worldwide have entered the market with polymers of similar composition. Among those which have been active in this area are Teijin, Hooker, Union Carbide, Bayer and Dynamit Nobel1,2,3,4.
