Ertalyte PETP Index

Main properties of our range of Ertalyte sheet, rod and tube are:
  • High mechanical strength, stiffness and hardness
  • Very good creep resistance
  • Low and constant coefficient of friction
  • Excellent wear resistance (comparable with or even better than nylon grades)
  • Very good dimensional stability (better than polyacetal)
  • Excellent stain resistance
  • Better resistance to acids than nylon and polyacetal
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Physiologically inert (suitable for food contact)
  • Good resistance to high energy radiation (gamma and X-rays)
In addition, the range of Ertalyte we can supply offers good chemical and abrasion resistance. Its low moisture absorption enables mechanical and electrical properties to remain virtually unaffected by moisture.

Choose material grade
The following grades of Ertalyte are available to buy online - please select from:
  • Ertalyte PETP
    Ertalyte is an unreinforced, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester based on polyethylene terephthalate (PET-P). It is characterised as having the best dimensional stability coupled with excellent wear resistance, a low coefficient of friction, high strength, and resistance to moderately acidic solutions - making it especially suitable for the manufacture of precision mechanical parts, capable of sustaining high loads and enduring wear conditions.

    Ertalyte is FDA compliant in natural and black. Ertalyte is an excellent candidate for parts used in the food processing and equipment industries.

    Available colours: Natural (white) and Black   Available to buy in: sheet, rod and tube
  • Ertalyte TX
    Ertalyte TX is a PET compound incorporating a uniformly dispersed solid lubricant. Its specific formulation yields a premium, internally lubricated bearing-grade. Ertalyte TX has not only an outstanding wear resistance, but offers in comparison with Ertalyte an even lower coefficient of friction and excels under both high pressure and velocity conditions. It is also ideally suited for applications involving soft metal and plastic mating surfaces.
