PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)

PET is a semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastic polyester which offer high wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, high stiffness, strength and superb sliding properties. These attributes combined with low moisture absorption make it an excellent material choice for complex parts requiring excellent dimensional stability and surface quality. PET exhibits excellent resistance to acid, staining and has an overall good chemical resistance. PET is a durable and tough plastic as compared with other commodity resins in a similar performance and price range.
