PBT – Polybutyleneterephthalate PBT-I GF30PRECITE® P3 GF 30 4 natural (8242)
PRECITE®P3 GF 30 4 natur (8242) is a 30% glass fibre reinforced and hydrolysis stabilised polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). It is characterised by a high stiffness and toughness as well as good chemical resistance. This formulation is GMA free (glycidyl methacrylate) and meets the VW-50136 standard. Furthermore, the material impresses with very good dimensional stability due to its low moisture absorption. Therefore, the material is perfectly suitable for technical precision components in applications in the automotive industry, mechanical engineering, E&E and household goods industries with increased humidity.

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.

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.
