Overview

The Material

Eastman Neostar™ elastomers are clear, durable, general purpose grade copolyester ethers. Neostar™ elastomers were designed to be coextruded with other profile materials to provide a shape memory "hinge" for use in the profile and automotive markets. Neostar elastomers are also ideal for packaging, tubing, injection molding, and cast film applications where durability, strength, and flex-crack and puncture resistance in harsh environments are required. These elastomers provide a full range of flexibility and memory without the addition of plasticizers, while remaining remarkably clear and free of the blush or haze that can occur in high-temperature applications.
