PET properties at a glance

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is a thermoplastic material that is part of the group of polycondensates. PET is available as amporphic and as semi-crystalline material. At Röchling Industrial, we process semi-crystalline PET under the brand name Sustadur® PET. Semi-crystalline PET is characterised by a combination of different properties, which render the material particularly suitable for demanding components in mechanical and plant engineering in addition to other areas of application. (Amorphous PET, known from the production of beverage bottles, is not part of our range.)

The properties of PET include but are not limited to:

  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Very low water absorption
  • Excellent creep rupture behaviour
  • Good sliding properties
  • High resistance to wear
  • High strength and stiffness
  • Good machinability
  • Low thermal expansion coefficient

Sustadur® PET Modifications

Sustadur® PET is available in various modifications.

  • Sustadur® PET GLD 120 and Sustadur® PET GLD 130 are materials specifically optimized for sliding
  • Sustadur® PET FG is suitable for direct contact with food in accordance with EU Regulation 10/2011/EC and the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Sustadur® PET - Examples of Use

Because of its versatile properties, Sustadur® PET is used in various industries - for instance:

  • Mechanical engineering and plant engineering
  • Food industry
  • Conveyors
  • Wind power
  • Electrical engineering
