The Valox® family of thermoplastic polyester resins are semi-crystalline materials based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and/or polyethylene terephthalate (PET) polymers.
Valox® resin formulations include many performance-matched grades designed to provide application-specific property profiles.
Valox® resins combine heat and chemical resistance, as well as outstanding electrical properties with exceptionally good processability and surface appearance.
New Valox® iQ® resins are created with polybutylene terephthalate (PBT)-based polymers derived from 60% post-consumer plastic waste, consuming less energy and yielding less carbon dioxide (CO2) in their manufacturing than traditional resins.
Typical applications of Valox® Resins, electrical connectors, electronic boxes, domestic appliances, IT cabinets, industrial plugs and sockets, buffer tubes for fibre optics, coil bobbins, lamp holders.
