Polyester makes barbecue dual purpose

French kitchen equipment company Tefal uses Eastman Chemical’s THERMX polyester in a newly designed electrical barbecue that can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Preliminary tests on the new design showed that heat could transfer from the metallic element used to heat the cooking grill to the base of the unit, so a material with excellent heat resistant properties was needed to stop this heat from being transferred to the feet, especially since the barbecue was designed for tabletop use. THERMX’s mechanical properties made it the ideal choice.
