OVERVIEW

In 2010, Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products introduced a new family of engineering plastic materials, called Duratron®. Quadrant had previously marketed two polyimide products with the Duratron name, but they have expanded the product family to include other high-performance polymer materials. This was done to offer a unified approach to materials selection & specification, and also to distinguish these products from their respective resin manufacturers' tradenames.

As a leading Quadrant distributor, Boedeker Plastics sells all Quadrant's engineering materials in sheet, rod and tube forms ... and we also machine parts from those shapes to our customers specifications. As a service to our customers, we offer this cross-reference information and explanation of the new Duratron product family.

To summarize, Ultem® PEI products are designated "Duratron® U", Torlon® PAI products become "Duratron® T", and Celazole® PBI is named "Duratron® CU". Quadrant is also introducing new PolyImide products to the market as "Duratron® D" grades. NOTE: The older Duratron XP and Duratron 150 polyimide products have been discontinued from further production ... although limited inventories do remain available until sold off.

Here's more detailed information about the Duratron ® family of products, including links to properties datasheets:
