Hytrel® is an engineering thermoplastic with elastic properties that overcomes some of the drawbacks of rubber: flexibility at low temperatures, high strength, retention of properties at elevated temperatures, and resistance to many oils, solvents, and industrial chemicals. This material is well suited for seating elastic support.
Polybutylene terephthalate is a thermoplastic polyester. PBT combines high strength, low water absorption, and resistance to many chemicals. It also has excellent dielectric properties, and good high temperature aging, and it’s favorable for outdoor applications.
Thermoplastic Polyurethane Elastomers (TPU)
Thermoplastic polyurethane monofilament is an elastic fiber with good strength and recovery offering many desirable physical and chemical properties including extreme abrasion resistance and toughness, excellent adhesion and transparency, flexibility over a wide temperature range, and resistance to degradation from water, oils, greases, fungi, and other chemicals.
Polyethylene monofilament is flexible with great chemical resistance. It’s ideal for furniture and seat cushion applications.
