Description

Polyether block Pebax® Rnew® 30R51 SA 01 resin is a thermoplastic elastomer made of flexible polyether and rigid polyamide based on renewable resources.

Pebax® Rnew® 30R51 SA 01 resin is an inherently antistatic polymer and can be dry blended or compounded with a polymer matrix to lower the surface resistivity of the final part. This grade is particularly recommended for PMMA matrices. This hydrophilic grade when extruded into either a thin film or laminated on to a substrate offers excellent permeability to moisture vapor while remaining waterproof. The percentage of renewable carbon according to ASTM D6866 is 41%

. Refractive index according to an internal method is 1.49.
