HYDEX® 4101 & 4101L

 

B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply is a supplier of Hydex® 4101 and 4101L.

 

Hydex® 4101 and Hydex® 4101L (internally lubricated) represent a family of stock shape plastics with elevated performance over PET-P, Acetal and Nylon. Hydex 4101 is a PBT Polyester with an outstanding set of properties that include; wear resistance, chemical resistance and toughness. Hydex 4101L (Lubricated) is an enhanced version with improved wear, PV range and lubricity over Hydex® 4101. In direct comparison to other commonly used plastics. 

 

Hydex® 4101 and Hydex® 4101L have improved Wear and Chemical Resistance vs Acetal (POM) 
 

  • Hydex® 4101/4101L are compatible with chemicals having a pH range of 2.0 - 9.0, Acetal's range is 4.0 to 9.0 

  • Hydex® 4101/4101L can with stand repeated "CIP" chemical washdown without affecting material performance. Acetal degrades upon repeated contact with aqueous chlorine solutions. 

  • Hydex® 4101L has 30% higher limiting PV than Delrin AF 

  • Hydex® 4101L has about two times better wear factor than Acetal 

  • Hydex® 4101L is FDA approved for direct food contact, Delrin® AF is not

 

FEATURES

  • Hydex® 4101 and 4101L have 20% greater impact strength than PET-P 

  • Hydex® 4101L has about 50% better wear factor than PET-P 

  • Hydex® 4101L has more than twice the LPV performance than PET-P 

  • Hydex® 4101L has 50% lower coefficient of friction than PET-P

  • Hydexv 4101 and 4101L have moisture absorption of 0.07%

  • Nylon has moisture absorption 15 times greater than Hydex, and can exhibit significant dimensional changes in use.
