DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET thermoplastic polyester elastomer
Hytrel® … a thermoplastic and elastomer in one
Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomers provide the flexibility of rubbers, the strength of plastics, and the processibility of thermoplastics.
Hytrel® is also available in a full range of Shore D hardnesses (30D to 82D). Special grades include heat stabilized, flame retardant and blow molding. Concentrates include black pigments, UV protection additives, hydrolysis resistant additives, heat stabilizers and flame retardants.
Hytrel® RS Renewably Sourced Thermoplastic Elastomers can help reduce environmental footprint without compromising performance.
Grades containing 35% to 65% renewably sourced material show the same performance and processing characteristics of original Hytrel®.
CONSIDER FOR …
Hytrel® is ideal for parts requiring excellent flex fatigue and broad use temperature. It resists tearing, flex-cut growth, creep and abrasion. It offers strength and stiffness plus outstanding toughness while resisting hydrocarbons and many other fluids.Hytrel® can be processed easily by conventional thermoplastic processes, such as injection molding, blow molding, calendaring, rotational molding, extrusion and meltcasting.
