The new PBT product range Pocan XHR proves to be a practical all-rounder

The new Pocan XHR (Xtreme Hydrolysis-Resistant) product range from LANXESS boasts outstanding resistance to hydrolytic degradation in very hot and humid conditions. In internal testing with standardized test specimens based on the stringent SAE/USCAR2 Rev. 6 long-term hydrolysis tests of the US Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the compounds reached Class 4 or Class 5 – the top two ratings.
“However, the launch of Pocan XHR has demonstrated that the additional benefits of the materials are just as important to many users. They often make the most of the high resistance to thermal shock, hot air, and chemicals, as well as the mechanical properties of the compounds based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT),” explains Ralf Heinen, application developer at the High Performance Materials business unit.

Stable in hot and dry conditions -
Many electrical and electronic devices are exposed to ever-higher thermal loads for reasons including confined installation spaces or elevated operating temperatures. When used in dry environments, the plastics for these devices need to be able to withstand long periods in hot air. “That is another strength of Pocan XHR. For example, the impact strength of most product types in the XHR series remains virtually unchanged even after 3,000 hours of being stored in 150°C air,” says Heinen. This makes the compounds ideal for parts in engine compartments, such as connectors, or for power electronics components.
