BASF Ultradur® High Speed PBT– Fills
Outstanding Flow Properties Mean Up to 30% Faster Cycle Times
The new Ultradur® High Speed
PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) has significantly
improved new flow properties delivering measurable benefits
over standard PBT grades in a variety of applications.
The new easy-flow product is a really fast mover: depending
on the glass-fiber content, it flows nearly twice as far as
comparable standard Ultradur® PBT grades. Other characteristics
of the polymer – like mechanical and thermal properties,
density, shrinkage and hydrolysis stability – are not
significantly affected by the process.
The good flowability of Ultradur High Speed makes the production
of injection-molded plastic components less expensive and helps
to save energy. These factors qualified the material to receive
an eco-efficiency label from BASF. This label is awarded to
products that perform better from an environmental and financial
standpoint than comparable products.
Benefits for Injection Molders include:
in Parts and Mold Design
Temperature and Shorter Holding Times
