Connectors and housings that withstand heat and time
For electrical and electronic applications such as housings and connectors, manufacturers are looking for materials that are durable and can withstand high temperatures over a long period of time.
Keeping those priorities in mind, BASF recommends our Ultradur® thermoplastic polyester, a partly crystalline, thermoplastic polyester based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT).
The material's traditional advantages include high stiffness and strength, very good dimensional stability at high temperatures, low water absorption, good chemical resistance and outstanding heat-aging performance. Combined, these properties make for a superior electrical and electronic application material.
