Ertalyte® PET-P FG

Polyethylene Terephthalate Polyester

Produced from our proprietary resin grades, Ertalyte® PET-P FG (Food Grade) is an unreinforced, semi-crystalline grade that is characterized by its excellent wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, high strength, and resistance to moderately acidic solutions. This grade is capable of sustaining high loads, and retains more of its original strength up to 180° F / 85° C than nylons or acetals. Due to these characteristics and its FDA (compositional FDA 21 CFR § 177.1630) and EU 10/2011 food compliant composition, Ertalyte® PET-P FG components are a favored solution for bearing and structural applications throughout the pharmaceutical, food processing and packaging, and oil and gas industries.
