Ertalyte® Index

Ertalyte® is a proprietary, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester based on polyethylene terephthalate (PETP).

The unique properties of Ertalyte® offers good chemical and abrasion resistance whilst its low moisture absorption enables mechanical and electrical properties to remain virtually unaffected by moisture

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)
