Product Description

Durastar™ DS1010 polymer contains a mold release. It has excellent appearance and clarity. Its most outstanding features are chemical resistance and excellent processing characteristics. Exposure to aromatic oils often causes crazing or actual fracture of many polymer resins, but DS1010 maintains its physical properties when exposed to these oils, and its appearance is virtually unchanged. Easy to process, it flows readily, fills intricate molds, and is well suited for thick-wall applications. Under existing United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, Durastar™ DS1010 may be used in food contact articles which comply with the specifications and conditions of use in 21 CFR 177.1240. This product is certified to ANSI/NSF Standard 51.
