Crastin®

 
 
 

Polybutylene Terephthalate Resin For Industrial Applications

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 properties, 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.

Advantages

Design Freedom icon

Design Freedom

Crastin® PBT offers high flow resins which allow for more complex, thin-walled parts. It also has excellent aesthetics, from colorability to surface finish (gloss).

Processability icon

Processability

PBT inherently has a fast crystallization process, which allows for faster cycle times. Crastin® PBT offers SF grades with higher flows for even faster cycle times.

Hydrolysis Resistance Performance icon

Hydrolysis Resistance Performance

Crastin® PBT hydrolysis resistant grades have industry-leading performance combined with processing stability for use with hot runners and regrind.
