Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT), a semi-crystalline engineering-grade thermoplastic that is part of the polyester family, combines excellent mechanical and electrical properties with robust chemical resistance. It was first introduced by Ticona as Celanex® PBT.
PBT is a white or off-white polyester. Unreinforced grades offer performance typical of a crystalline polymer, and are often used in applications when low moisture absorption, resistance to staining, or resistance to cleaning chemicals is required.
Several formulations, i.e., glass-filled, mineral filled, lubricant filled and variants within these grades such as FDA compliant, flame retardant, impact modified, UV resistant are available to meet specific application demands.
