Common uses: Gears, bobbins, hoods, bearings, etc.


  • Polyethylene terephthalate High rigidity and hardness.
  • Abrasion resistant and good chemical resistance.
  • Useful at elevated temperatures.
  • Good dielectric properties that are maintained at high temperature and high moisture content.
  • Low water absorption.
  • Resistant to sun and UV radiation.
  • Low friction
  • Food approved.


  • Low impact resistance in criminal instructions.
  • Charged electrostatically, which means that dust and grease particles stick more easily to the material.
  • Tendency to skew (worse than PA, but better than PP).
  • Hydrolyte sensitive.
  • Large shape shrinkage if not fiberglass-filled.
