Polyethylene Terephthalate – known as PET or polyester — is a thermoplastic polyester that can be amorphous, crystalline, or a mixture of both, depending on how it is processed. All forms provide good chemical resistance and durability.More about Polyester (PET) »
Good for both wet and dry environments
High strength and rigidity – ideal for close tolerance parts
Excellent stain resistance
Good wear resistance and excellent dimensional stability
Better resistance to acids than nylon or acetal
