PET (Polyethylene Terephthalat)

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), produced by polycondensation, is a thermoplastic technically engineered plastic from the polyester group.

PET has excellent mechanical strength, demonstrates low deformation, has low water absorption, and is the ideal material for highly stressed sliding applications.

  • Temperature resistant, continuous operating temperature -20°C – 115°C
  • Excellent stiffness and very high strength and hardness
  • Excellent friction characteristics (also in wet and humid conditions)
  • Very high resistance to wear and tear
  • Constant low sliding friction and very low wear due to sliding action
  • Very low water absorption (saturation at 0,5%)
  • Very low thermal expansion
  • Good creep resistance
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Good electric insulation properties
  • Good resistance against weak acids, alkalis, salt solutions, oils, and fuels

Applications for this product are found, for example, within the general mechanical engineering sector, automotive sector, electrical industry, material handling, and precision engineering.
