Description A common thermoplastic polyester in daily life, it has excellent toughness, tensile strength, impact strength, abrasion resistance and electrical insulation.
Application Polyethylene terephthalate is an excellent waterproof and moisture-proof material. Plastic bottles made of PET are used for mineral water and carbonated soft drinks. Its high mechanical strength makes PET film an ideal choice for tape applications. Its chemical inertness and other physical properties make it suitable for food packaging. Other packaging applications include rigid cosmetic cans, microwave containers, transparent films, etc.
PET has a wide range of applications in the textile industry. Polyester fabric is both sturdy and flexible. Polyester fiber fabric is lightweight, windproof, resistant to resistance, and more tear resistant. PET monofilament is mainly used for making mesh fabrics
Polyethylene terephthalate has good electrical insulation performance, high structural and dimensional stability. These advantages enable its use in the electrical and electronic industries. It is an effective polymer that can replace die-casting metals and thermosetting materials in applications
PET is used to manufacture parts in the automotive industry, such as engine hoods and connectors.Used in electrical parts including relay bases and lamp sockets, pump housings, gears, sprockets, chair arms, casters and furniture components.
Features And Benefits Balance of strength, stiffness and toughness, excellent electrical properties, surface appearance and chemical resistance.
