Property (guide value)
Sustarin C FG
Sustadur PET FG
Tensile modulus of elasticity (MPa)
Yield stress (MPa)
Coefficient of linear thermal expansion (10-6/K)
Service temperature, long term (°C)
Due to its better chemical resistance to acids compared to Sustarin C, Sustadur PET FG also has advantages when in contact with acidic food and acidic cleaning agents. Cleaning with hot water or even superheated steam, on the other hand, is not recommended due to the risk of stress cracking.
The production of the product range is made to order, currently the range is not yet available as a stock product.
