PET (polyethylene terephthalate, semicrystalline)

High performance engineering plastic

PET (semi-crystalline thermoplastic) is a strong, stiff engineering plastic with excellent machining characteristics, chemical resistance, and bearing and wear properties. PET is often used for food processing machinery applications where low moisture absorption, low thermal expansion, resistance to staining, or resistance to cleaning chemicals is required.

PET Performance benefits are:
•    Strong and stiff
•    Excellent chemical resistance
•    Resistant to many CIP (clean in place) wash-down solutions
•    Low moisture absorption
•    Low thermal expansion
•    Excellent wear characteristics, even in wet environments
•    Stain resistance

Typical Applications of PET are:
•    Valve components
•    Manifolds
•    Filler pistons
•    Bearings and bushings
•    Wear pads
•    Packaging and machinery parts
•    Food processing machinery components
•    Wheels
•    Rollers
•    Electrical components
