Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT)
PBT is an unreinforced thermoplastic polyester derived from polybutylene terephthalate. Its excellent wear and impact resistance, low coefficient of friction, high flexural modulus, and superior stability make it a versatile material for designing mechanical and electro-mechanical parts. Because PBT has no centerline porosity, the possibility of fluid absorption and leakage is virtually eliminated. PBT plastic is available in basic shapes including sheets, rods and tubes.
