Ertalyte® (PET-P) polyethylene terephthalate

Facts About Ertalyte® (PET-P)

Ertalyte® is an unreinforced, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester-based material. It is characterized as having excellent dimensional stability, excellent wear resistance, a low coefficient of friction, high strength, and resistance to moderately acidic solutions.

Ertalyte’s® continuous service temperature is 210 degrees F. It retains significantly more of its original strength up to 180 degrees F more than nylon or acetal. Ertalyte® offers good chemical and abrasion resistance, low moisture absorption, and machinability.
