Hytrel ®

DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET thermoplastic elastomer combines the flexibility of rubber with the strength and processability of thermoplastics. Manufacturers prefer parts made with Hytrel® for their resilience, heat and chemical resistance, as well as their strength and durability. Hytrel® drives innovative design, enabling the development of unique parts with multiple performance characteristics. This versatile thermoplastic elastomer resin can flex in multiple directions, cycle after cycle, long after rubber would break. Its durability has made it an essential ingredient in automotive components such as the Constant Velocity Joint (CVJ) boot, which must endure an average of 150,000 miles of pounding over a wide range of temperatures. DuPont™ Hytrel® RS delivers all of the benefits of Hytrel®, yet it contains up to 60 percent renewably sourced materials from biomass, making it an excellent product for applications demanding renewably sourced options

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.
