Ultradur® LUX is a PBT that offers new possibilities for joining plastics using laser transmission welding. The thermoplastic shows a previously unachieved laser transparency in the range of 900 to 1100 nm – at a consistently high level. The reason for this is that with this PBT the laser beam is considerably less scattered and much less widened. At the welding laser wavelengths, Ultradur® LUX thus lets through much more light than standard PBT.
Ultradur® LUX – PBT with outstanding transparency for laser welding
- Greater freedom of design
- Very wide process window
- Shorter cycle times
- High process consistency
- High quality consistency
- Greater flexibility
The properties of this plastic give the processor using laser welding as a connecting method a number of advantages:

Laser welding with Ultradur® LUX – a quick and clean joining method
Laser transmission welding is a clean joining method which allows welding of parts with complex geometries in a quick, particle and vibration free way. This combination makes laser welding an especially interesting joining method with sensitive electronic parts. With Ultradur® LUX it is possible to use and exhaust this method in a way which has not been possible with PBT up to now.
