PET

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is one of the most widely used engineering plastics, together with POM-C and Nylon. Its excellent mechanical properties make it suitable for precision parts. It provides high tensile and mechanical strength, extreme hardness and excellent dimensional stability. The product has a very low coefficient of friction making it an ideal choice for wearing components.
