The improved performance is due to the addition of trimethylene carbonate to the standard GORE RESOLUT Regenerative Material and the patterning of the membrane itself.
The trimethylene group in the PTT, rather than the ethylene group in the PET, gave a helical molecular conformation due to the chain conformation of odd-numbered n-methylene glycol (12).
Blends of poly trimethylene terephthalate and EPDM are a new class of TPEs that combine the excellent engineering properties of PTT and the elastic, ozone resistant and weathering resistant properties of EPDM rubber.
The number after the hyphen of PETT indicates the actual content of PTT in PETT copolymers, for instance, the PETT-85 copolymer is characterized by 85 mol% trimethylene terephthalate units and 15 mol% ethylene terephthalate units of the actual composition.
