Polyethylenetheraphtalate (PET)

Sheet Rod Tube Film

PET Plastic

Polyethylenetheraphtalate also known as thermoplastic polyester, offers excellent wear and abrasion resistance in wet and dry environments. PET displays good hardness, stiffness and strength along with superb sliding properties. Good creep resistance, combined with its low moisture absorption, make it an excellent material choice for complex parts with high demands on dimensional stability and surface quality. PET’s unique combination of properties also make it the choice for high precision and moving parts. PET plastic has no centerline porosity. It retains its strength and creep resistance to 180(deg) F. PET combines the wear resistance of nylon with the dimensional stability of acetals.
