PET and PBT - Polyethylene Terephthalate

Rigid Thermoplastic Polyester, PET and PBT

PET and PBT materials are used frequently in a self lubricating bearing surface or  slide type applications. Resistant to most common chemicals.

Commonly replaces aluminum, Acetal/Delrin® and Nylon. Used frequently in Food and Dairy processing, material handling and automotive.

Other brand or trade names are: Tecapet®, Tecadur®, Ertalyte®, Ensitep®, Hydex®, Sustadur®, Celanx®, Duranex®, Urtaldur®, Valox®, Rynite®, and Hostadur®.

A new PBT material is available from Ensinger, called 4101 UD Blue. This material is one of the first “ultra detectable” plastic materials. This material is visually detectable by standard equipment, metal detectable and X-Ray detectable by standard equipment in food processing plants. Detectable plastics can help eliminate the massive recalls we have seen from food processing plants.

Specializing in Engineering Plastics, Mechanical Plastics and Polyester High Performance Plastics

Why you should use Polyester:

  • Very stiff material- High strength
  • Superior wear resistance
  • 230 degrees F continuous use temperature
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Improved UV resistance compared to, ABS, Acetal/Delrin® or Nylon
  • Easily machined and fabricated
