DuPont ™ Hytrel ® thermoplastic polyester elastomer
Available from DuPont Engineering Polymers
Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomers provide the processability of thermoplastics, the flexibility of rubbers, and the strength of plastics. The product line is available in a full range of Shore D hardnesses (30D to 82D). Special grades of Hytrel® include heat stabilized, flame retardant, and blow molding. Concentrates include black pigments, UV protection additives, and hydrolysis resistant additives. It is ideal for parts that require flex fatigue and broad temperature use. Hytrel® resists tearing, flex-cut growth, creep and abrasion, and also offers strength and stiffness plus outstanding toughness while resisting hydrocarbons and many other fluids. Hytrel® can be processed easily through conventional thermoplastic processes, such as injection molding, blow molding, calendaring, rotational molding, extrusion and meltcasting.
