Thank You for Asking.

我们经常收到有关使用Eastman医用级聚合物进行模塑成型的问题,并始终乐于答疑解惑并提供更多信息。以下是对我们最近收到的一个咨询请求的回复:
 
“What is the heat deflection temperature for Eastman MXF221 copolyester?”
 
Heat deflection temperature (HDT) is the temperature at which a polymer or plastic deforms under a specified load. The HDT of our latest offering, Eastman MXF221 copolyester, is outlined here.

MXF221 is a biocompatible, fully compounded medical grade polymer that is uniquely suited for medical devices and electronic device housings. Developed from Eastman Tritan copolyester, MXF221 offers superior chemical resistance to stringent disinfectants and drugs, improved durability, and greater longevity.
 
Thermal control is critical for injection molding. Keeping temperatures cooled below the HDT of MXF221 helps ensure successful demolding with no dragging or sticking of parts. Preparing a cooling strategy early in the tool design process can pay big dividends in cycle time and processability.
