PET and PBT Polyester

PET and PBT are polyester based plastics with excellent wear resistance, a low coefficient of friction and good chemical resistance. Its dimensional stability, combined with low moisture absorption, allows PET and PBT polyester to be machined into precise, high-tolerance components.
