Polyester (PET)

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) has a high degree of crystallinity, high mechanical strength and excellent dimensional stability. Rigid and impact resistant, PET is perfect for sliding applications. These characteristics are maintained within harsh environments. The dimensional stability is sustained even under extreme heat, lasting almost to its melting point of 250 °C. PET is commonly used for mechanical, automotive, precision, electrical and communication engineering. Perfect for replacing metals, PET is able to reduce price, weight and production time. To enhance the mechanical properties of PET, a solid PTFE lubricant is added to the basic polyethylene terephthalate polymer, creating TYNALYTE-ZX.
