Ertalyte® PET

Polyethylene terephthalate

Ertalyte® PET is an unreinforced, semi-crystalline grade produced from our proprietary resins and 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, Ertalyte® PET components are a favored solution for bearing and structural applications throughout the pharmaceutical, food processing and packaging, and oil and gas industries.
