DuPont Crastin PBT thermoplastic polyester for fluorescent lamp holders

Du Pont Engineering Polymers : 19 June, 2007  (New Product)
Leviton Manufacturing has sharpened its competitive edge with the adoption of DuPont Crastin PBT thermoplastic polyester for fluorescent lamp holders. Scott Mast, engineering manager at Leviton
Leviton engineers took advantage of the toughness, resilience and high flow of Crastin and incorporated integral features for snap-fit assembly and lamp locking, thus eliminating metal fasteners and simplifying assembly. Using Crastin PBT also eliminates runner scrap and deflashing operations routinely required for urea parts.

“DuPont specialists assisted us with solid technical support,” Mast added. “They recommended suitable resin grades and provided valuable input on tooling design and process optimization.”

DuPont Crastin PBT resins selected by Leviton fulfill requirements for toughness, resilience, strength, UV resistance, a V-0 UL94 flammability classification and high molding productivity.

Founded in 1906 and currently celebrating its 100th Anniversary, Leviton produces lamp holders from Crastin in a variety of styles and sizes for T 5, T 8 and T 12 fluorescent lamps.
