High Heat Materials
Polybutene-1 (PB-1) is a technically advanced and versatile thermoplastic that is used worldwide in applications including piping systems for large-scale building projects, district energy networks, heating and cooling as well as plumbing installations.
However, new PB-1 grades, applications and techniques are constantly being developed. These materials redefine performance in widely differing segments because when compared to other polyolefins, PB-1 has a higher level of resistance to strain even at elevated temperatures over long periods of time.
In this webinar LyondellBasell’s experts, will show how PB-1 can make a difference for demanding applications, be it thanks to mechanical or thermal properties.
This webinar will feature typical material properties of PB-1, specifically where it is similar to often used polymers such as polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP), but more interestingly, where this material excels. PB-1 provides a unique combination of flexibility and pressure resistance together with excellent thermal properties.
Most importantly, you will also learn from project examples showcasing the use of PB-1 in typical pipe applications for a series of installations. Additionally, examples of other applications in hot-and-cold water distribution and heating will show how PB-1 can make a difference.
Manufacturers of piping systems, but also engineers, architects, planners, building contractors and installers.
