Valox™ FR 1 - excellent resistance to high temperatures and chemicals

PBT film with heat stability, electrical properties, environmental stability against chemicals and UV light, and flame resistance

Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) films offer a high resistance against temperatures and chemicals and a low moisture absorbance. Their outstanding dielectric strength and ease of processing make them very suitable for a wide range of electrical, electronic and medical applications.

VALOX™ resins are semi-crystalline materials based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and/or polyethylene terephthalate (PET) polymers, offering a unique mix of value-added properties. Potential benefits include heat stability, electrical properties, environmental stability against chemicals and UV light, and flame resistance in certain grades.

The König Film Centre offers you Valox™ PBT films in different thicknesses as well as in rolls and sheets from our stock in Wuppertal. Just contact us!


Properties

  • flame retardance (UL94 VTM-0 listed)
  • good temperature resistance
  • excellent resistance against chemicals
  • outstanding dielectric strength and low moisture absorbance

Processing

PBT films can be processed in various ways. Considering the guidelines of the manfacturer Sabic we recommend the following ways of processing Valox™ films:

  • printing
  • cutting
  • punching
  • laser cutting (limited possibilities)
  • embossing
  • thermoforming
  • back injection moulding
  • bonding
