PBT – Polybutyleneterephthalate PBT I

PRECITE® P3 S1 black (7522)

PRECITE® P3 S1 black (7522) is an unreinforced, medium viscosity polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) with high impact strength. Due to its low moisture absorption, this material has very good dimensional stability. It is particularly suitable for precision parts in the automotive, E&E or appliances industry.

Processing information

The listed values are recommendations. Higher values should be used for higher glass loadings. We recommend only de-humidifying or vacuum dryers. Extensive drying can cause filling problems and surface defects.

Drying temperature (τ ≤ -30°C) 100 - 120°C

Processing moisture 0,02 - 0,04%

1 Feed section 60 - 80°C

2 Temperature zone 1 - Zone 4 240 - 270°C

3 Nozzle temperature 240 - 280°C

4 Melt temperature 250 - 270°C

5 Mold temperature 60 - 80°C

P Nach Holding pressure, spec. 300 - 800 bar

P Stau Back pressure, spec. 30 - 100 bar

Injection speed medium to high

Screw speed 8 - 15 m/min


Due to hydrolysis sensitivity of polyesters, a careful drying of the material before processing is very important. High residual moisture contents causes, in addition to surface defects, a decomposition of the molecular chains and thus reduced mechanical properties. If there are longer interruptions of the process, the cylinder temperature should be lowered. Furthermore, we recommend a thorough cleaning of the screw cylinder with extended dwell time or a material change. Glass-fiber-reinforced polyolefins (PE, PP) have established a particularly good cleaning effect.
