What is Valox material?

VALOX 357 is a non-reinforced, impact modified, injection moldable grade resin. The Polycarbonate/Polybutylene Terephthalate (PC/PBT) is highly flame retardant with good temperature performance and a relative temperature index of -40°F to 284°F.

What is Valox 420seo?

Valox 420SE0 resin is a general purpose resin that is an excellent candidate for a wide variety of applications including electrical components, bobbins, switches, stators, commutators and cooling fans. Request information Datasheet EN.

Is Valox a PBT?

VALOX™ are a semi-crystalline family of PBT, PET and blends with Polycarbonate (PC), offering an outstanding mix of value added properties for a variety of applications.

What Valox 357?

VALOX® FR Resin 357 is a thermoplastic polyester resin with outstanding physical and electrical properties, rendering it a suitable material for electrical components. It is a mix of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and polycarbonate (PC) that is unfilled and impact modified.

What is PBT plastic?

Plastic Material Properties. PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) is a strong and stiff engineering plastic with excellent machining characteristics, chemical resistance, and bearing and wear properties.

Is PBT FDA approved?

Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT) is a high-performance thermoplastic that is an optimal choice for food processing applications, as it is FDA- and USDA- approved for use with food. It offers an excellent combination of wear and moisture resistance with strength and toughness.

Can you machine PBT?

PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) is a thermoplastic polyester that is very similar to PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) but has a slightly better impact resistance. As a semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastic, it has outstanding processing properties for molding, thermoforming and machining.

What is PBT made from?

polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), a strong and highly crystalline synthetic resin, produced by the polymerization of butanediol and terephthalic acid.

Is PBT brittle?

Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) is a brittle polymer with the disadvantage of low impact toughness, so it is not easy to meet the requirements of both high tensile strength, flexural strength, and high impact strength.

Can PBT be clear?

Accordingly, it has a greater hardness and rigidity and is never transparent. PBT is primarily used for technical injection moulding parts.
