Engineering 185°F - 300°F | Polyesters


HYDEX™ 4101L (lubricated) is a very stable chemical compound that can withstand high impact without deterioration. HYDEX™ 4101 has excellent resistance to typical cleaning chemicals such as chlorine and caustic solutions and has a very low moisture absorption rate, as much as 15 times less than nylon.

  • Good chemical resistance properties
  • High impact strength
  • A wear factor up to 50% better then PET-P
  • Very low moisture absorption rate
  • Excellent machining qualities
  • No center line porosity

HYDEX® 4101 & 4101L (lubricated) exhibits a broad range of outstanding properties for a variety of applications, especially in the food processing industry. It is ideal for applications such as cams, bearings, gears, food pistons, wear strips, scraper blades, valve bodies and conveyor components.
