TPC-ET - Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer
As a thermoplastic elastomer, Hytrel® by DuPont™ is ideal for a variety of applications as it combines the best out of two polymer worlds: the enormous flexibility of an elastomer with the strength and processability of a thermoplastic.
This product offers outstanding flexibility and flex fatigue in service temperatures of up to -40°C until up to 150°C, depending on the application requirements.
Other properties offered by Hytrel®, which is known by the international acronym TEEE (thermoplastic elastomer ether ester), include good elasticity, excellent resistance to compression set and creep, as well as resistance to swelling in oils and aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons in the medium temperature range.
Hytrel® is a TPE material that differs from elastomers like SEBS, TPO and TPU in many ways and is available in Shore hardnesses of 30 – 82 D. Special properties such as the UV resistance, fire-proofing (HFFR options available!) and temperature resistance of all types can be improved by adding Hytrel® concentrates.
Specific examples of typical applications are sleeves and bellows in the automotive industry or hoses and cable sheaths in the wire and cable sector. Other typical applications are conveyor belts, bedsprings, gears, membranes and films.
Searching for a eco-friendly, renewably sourced Hytrel® with a performance that equals those of the standard Hytrel® product family?
Now we have got the brand new Hytrel® ECO B for you! Fossil sourced polyether glycols in the soft segments are replaced by renewable polyether glycols made from plant feedstock which is non-food competing and making your polymer biomass-balanced.
The bio renewable content varies with the shore D hardness yet contains up to 60 percent renewably sourced materials from biomass, resulting in enhanced LCA performance and ISCC Plus certificates.
Various grades are now available as a 1-by-1 substitution to the existing product portfolio.
