Common features of Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomer include mechanical and physical properties such as exceptional toughness and resilience, high resistance to creep, impact and flex fatigue, flexibility at low temperatures and good retention of properties at elevated temperatures. In addition, it resists many industrial chemicals, oils and solvents. Special grades include heat stabilised, flame retardant, food contact compliant, blow molding and extrusion grades. Concentrates offered include black pigments, UV protection additives, heat stabilisers, and flame retardants. Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomer is plasticiser free.The good melt stability of Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomer normally enables the recycling of properly handled production waste. If recycling is not possible, DuPont recommends, as the preferred option, incineration with energy recovery (-24 kJ/g of base polymer) in appropriately equipped installations.For disposal, local regulations have to be observed. Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomer typically is used in demanding applications in the automotive, fluid power, electrical/electronic, consumer goods, appliance and power tool, sporting goods, furniture, industrial and off-road transportation/equipment industry.Hytrel® PC938 has a very low modulus, nominal hardness of 30D, containing non-discoloring stabilizer. Processed by thermoplastic processing techniques like injection molding and extrusion. Developed for applications such as parts for the healthcare industry.PREMIUM CONTROL for HEALTHCARE APPLICATIONSThis product is manufactured according to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) principles and generally accepted in food contact applications in the USA when meeting applicable use conditions. This product is also tested against ISO 10993-5 and -11 and selected parts of USP Class VI and FDA drug and device master files (DMF and MAF) have been established.For details, individual compliance statements are available from your DuPont representative.The below datasheet is a condensed version.
