The specific properties of this virgin crystalline Ertalyte PET rod & sheet make it specially suited for the manufacture of mechanical precision parts which have to sustain high loads and/or are subject to wear.
- Very good creep resistance
- High mechanical strength, stiffness and hardness
- Excellent wear resistance (comparable or even better than Nylon grades)
- Very good dimensional stability (better than polyacetal)
- Excellent stain resistance
- Better resistance to acids than nylon and polyacetal.
- Good electrical insulating properties
- Physiologically inert (suitable for food contact)
- Good resistance to high energy radiation (Gamma and X-rays)
Polyester Plastics Applications:
- Precision gears and bearings
- Thrust washers
- Pump components
- Components for mechanisms of precisions
