Pebax® Elastomers are block copolymers made up of rigid polyamide blocks and soft polyether blocks. Manipulating these blocks and their relative ratio allows for the creation of a large range that spans the flexibility spectrum from very hard and rigid to very soft and flexible, without the need for plasticizers.
These unique polymers maintain the highly desirable combination of the toughness traditionally associated with polyamides and the flexibility/elasticity more often seen with polyethers/polyesters.
Pebax® elastomers are among the highest performing in the world.
For many years, Pebax® elastomers have become famous for their outstanding combination of lightweight (typically 20% lighter than competitive polymers) and tremendously efficient energy return. Their "hysteresis loss" (intrinsic energy loss during flexural cycling) are among the lowest in the world. Further, Pebax® elastomers tend to maintain this flexural efficiency advantage over a wide temperature range - in other words, they tend not to stiffen/embrittle at lower temperature, and they tend not to soften or lose elasticity at higher temperatures.
