With more than 100 grades, Crastin® PBT is the resin of choice for cost-effective high-performance across a wide range of industrial applications. Designers, engineers, and manufacturers rely on Crastin® PBT for stiffness and toughness, superior electrical insulation pr operties, and exceptional surface finishes. Crastin® is also preferred for its excellent dimensional properties and stability versus moisture as well as its heat resistance. Crastin® is extremely versatile. It's available in FDA and EU approved grades for food and cosmetics applications, and it meets the most-stringent electrical insulation standards. It enables DuPont to offer the industry's largest portfolio of EIS pre-approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) grades and recognized to IEC standards. DuPont™ Crastin® PBT offers manufacturers the advantage of superior flow qualities. It's easy to process on conventional injection molding machines. It is available in a wide range of grades designed for low-warpage, hydrolysis resistance, and for blow-molding and extrusion. With Crastin®, DuPont materials science experts help customers gain cost efficiency without compromising on performance.

Hot Runner Manual for Robust Molding of Semi-crystalline Resins
Maximizing productivity is an important factor in determining part cost. One way to improve productivity is using a hot runner system. The decision when to use a hot runner system is mainly influenced by “yield” as hot runners can add complexity and cost to molds and require additional maintenance. Due to continuous improvement in the hot runner design a robust molding process is possible even with traditionally more thermally sensitive thermoplastic resins.
