SK Chemicals SKYPEL G240D Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Elastomer, TPE; Polyester TPE

Material Notes: SKYPEL G240D is a thermoplastic polyester elastomer resin exhibiting superior heat resistance with a relatively high melting point. SKYPEL G240D with a medium 40D hardness based on shore D scale is widely used for injection molding and extrusion applications.

Properties: Excellent mechanical properties such as high tensile strength and strain at break. High resistance to creep, impact, and flex-fatigue. Good thermal stability at high temperature. Excellent flexibility at low temperature. Good discoloration property at high temperature.

Applications: SKYPEL G240D is suitable for general compounding and producing special products such as automotive parts, cable jackets, hoses, tubes, films, and sheets. Processing: SKYPEL G240D should be sufficiently dried prior to processing. For effective drying using dehumidifying dryer, it should be held for 2 to 3 hours at 100 ? or overnight at least 70°C. Predried SKYPEL G240D in aluminum bag is also available.

Tensile property tests on ASTM Type IV dumbbells diecut from injection molded slab 2mm thick. Crosshead speed 50 mm/min.
