Material Notes:
Ingeo™ 3801X is designed for injection molding applications that require high heat and high impact performance. This polymer grade has much more rapid crystallization kinetics than other NatureWorks® resins currently in the market place. The rapid crystallization rate allows for the molding of crystalline parts at competitive cycle times with high heat distortion temperatures. Ingeo™ 3801X is designed for injection molding applications where the property requirements are opaque molded parts with heat deflection temperatures between 150ºF (65ºC) and 285ºF (140ºC) that do not require food contact approvals.
