Does anyone know dielectric constand for PEBAX?

    Subject line says it all. I've asked several times at vendors, no luck.
    They always think it's dielectric strength, but I need to calculate a

    Only need a ballpark number.

    Ya well, I entered all my stuff and when clicking on create account
    nothing happens. Many web site designers aren't worth their salt these days.

    It's unbelievable but in some such cases I actually have to get a sample
    and measure.

    Thanks, didn't think about the word permittivity because that was never
    used at my schools. 13 would be ugly. The question is where does it
    begin to rise? I need to operate in the 150-400kHz range. Maybe I just
    assume 4 and knock on wood :)

    Agreed. My chemistry knowledge says it should behaves something like
    nylon. Not sure what the polyether part would do, electrically, but hey,
    it's in the ballpark. :) That would put the loss tangent around 1% and K
    around 4 or so. You wouldn't want to take it into the microwave, but I
    doubt it'll melt from 400kHz applied to bulk material.

    It ain't my choice, and it's actually going into the blood stream. It's
    a sheath, a standard medical utensil in the world of catheters that goes
    in before anything else does. I already dread the lead vests during
    clinicals, those give me a back pain.

    Note to self: Must lose weight before that.

    Hello Joerg,

    You may visit matweb

    Depending on chemistry (formulation) Dielectric Constant seems to vary between 4 and 9.5 (general page on PEBA on matweb).

    Move to Spain for the winter to escape the cold? :)

    Hmmm ... where did you find the dielectric constant in there?

    I copied the wrong link...

    The general data is in:

    It mentions 4 to 9.5

    From the list of products, click on of the products with the red dots
    (EMS Grivory).

    This will show you product data.

    You are right, the wheater in Spain is better then the rain over here
    (around 20 degr. C. in Malaga).

    Thanks, Jim. Got it.

    I think I'll assume 7 for now and call it a day. If I provide enough
    margin in the calcs it should be ok.

    Wish I was there ...
