PETP

PETP – Polyethylene Terephthalate is a highly crystalline Thermoplastic

PETP is a unique engineering plastic which offers excellent mechanical strength, dimensional stability, sliding properties and wear resistance making it an excellent material for those tight tolerance parts.

PETP because of its molecular structure is sensitive to heavy impact and needs to be taken into consideration, but also gives the material stain resistance, that can be very useful for food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications.

Solutions in Plastics supplies PETP in sheet and rod stock shapes, but also machines and fabricates finished components, custom made to suit your individual requirements.

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PETP) is also known as the following tradenames; Ertalyte, Sustadur and Vesconite. Solutions in Plastics is a plastic supplier and stockist of PETP and are able to machine and fabricate from both rod, sheet and tube.

PETP is available in both standard and self lubricating grades for higher speed wear applications or where low friction is required.
