Polyplastics' New "DURANEX(R) 532AR" PBT Resin Provides Excellent Alkali Stress Crack Resistance For Automotive Market

TOKYO, Jan 17 (Bernama) -- The Polyplastics Group has announced the introduction of a new polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) resin which delivers excellent alkali stress crack resistance for a range of automotive applications. The new grade, DURANEX(R) 532AR, also exhibits outstanding hydrolysis/heat shock resistance and electrical performance for components in the chassis and engine compartment.

As demand for durability, safety and reliability in auto parts continues to increase, DURANEX(R) 532AR has successfully reduced the risk of cracking in molded articles by preventing alkali from penetrating the inside of the resin, thus imparting toughness that helps generate less stress. This alkaline can arise from rust formation in metal parts. DURANEX(R) 532AR, treated with a hydrolysis-resistant formula, has greater durability than standard materials.
