Ertalyte (PETP) | Plastic Stockist

Plastic Stockist provides a great selection of Ertalyte with excellent wear resistance. This unreinforced, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester is based on polyethylene terephthalate ( PET-P ). It is manufactured from proprietary resin grades made by Quadrant and only Quadrant partners like ourselves can offer Ertalyte plastic materials.

Ertalyte 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. Ertalyte's properties make it especially suitable for the manufacture of precision mechanical parts which are capable of sustaining high loads and enduring wear conditions. Ertalyte's continuous service temperature is 210°F (100°C) and its melting point is almost 150°F higher than acetals. It retains significantly more of its original strength up to 180°F (85°C) than nylon or acetal.

Ertalyte PET-P offers good chemical and abrasion resistance. Its low moisture absorption enables mechanical and electrical properties to remain virtually unaffected by moisture. Ertalyte PET-P can be machined to precise detail on standard metal working equipment. Ertalyte is FDA compliant in natural and black. Natural Ertalyte is also USDA, 3A-Dairy and Canada AG compliant. Ertalyte is an excellent candidate for parts used in the food processing and equipment industries.

Common uses for Ertalyte (PET)

Ertalyte applications include high tolerance precision parts because of its high strength and rigidity properties. This versatile plastic is used extensively for applications in food industries because both the natural and black are food compliant. Good for both wet and dry environments, Ertalyte is a great alternative to nylon or acetal where a better resistance to acids is required and higher service temperature applications.
