ISO-PET

PET (POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE)

ISO-PET is a thermoplastic material that impresses with its hardness and an excellent sliding behaviour. ISO-PET is, for example, used in the food industry for guides, rollers or stops as well as in mechanical engineering as the basis for gears or slide elements. 

Applications:

  • Automotive & mechanical engineering
  • Electrical engineering
  • Food and medical engineering

Types:

  • Finished parts

Characteristics:

  • Very hard
  • Low cold flow
  • Excellent sliding behaviour
