Ertalyte® PETP (Polyethylene Terephtalate)

Ertalyte® is an unreinforced, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester based on polyethylene terephthalate (PETP). 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 available to buy online in rod, sheet and tube.

Ertalyte® is FDA compliant in natural and black. Ertalyte® is an excellent candidate for parts used in the food processing and equipment industries, being easily sanitized using clean-in-place chemicals.

Because it is more rigid and offers greater thermal performance than nylon and acetal, Ertalyte® machines differently. For best results, consult the machining instructions guide for more information.
