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