HYTREL - Engg. Thermoplastic Elastomers

DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET thermoplastic polyester elastomer

Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomers provide the flexibility of rubbers, the strength of plastics, and the processability of thermoplastics.

Hytrel® is also available in a full range of Shore D hardnesses (30D to 82D). Special grades of this thermoplastic polyester elastomer include heat stabilized, flame retardant and blow molding. Concentrates include black pigments, UV protection additives, hydrolysis resistant additives, heat stabilizers and flame retardants.

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.
