Car on highway at night.

With more than 100 grades, Crastin® PBT is the resin of choice for cost-effective high-performance across a wide range of industrial applications.

Designers, engineers, and manufacturers rely on Crastin® PBT for stiffness and toughness, superior electrical insulation properties, and exceptional surface finishes. Crastin® is also preferred for its excellent dimensional properties and stability versus moisture as well as its heat resistance.

Crastin® is extremely versatile. It’s available in FDA and EU approved grades for food and cosmetics applications, and it meets the most-stringent electrical insulation standards. It enables DuPont to offer the industry’s largest portfolio of EIS pre-approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) grades and recognized to IEC standards. 

DuPont Crastin® PBT offers manufacturers the advantage of superior flow qualities. It’s easy to process on conventional injection molding machines. It is available in a wide range of grades designed for low-warpage, hydrolysis resistance, and for blow-molding and extrusion. 

With Crastin®, DuPont materials science experts help customers gain cost efficiency without compromising on performance.
