PET-P is an unreinforced, semicrystalline thermoplastic polyester based on polyethylene terephthalate. It is a high-strength product, has excellent dimensional stability and resists wear and the effects of moderately acidic solutions. A high melting point enables PET-P to retain significantly more of its original strength than nylon or acetal, making it suitable for the manufacture of precision mechanical parts. Its low moisture absorption enables mechanical and electrical properties to remain virtually unaffected by moisture.

Types of PET-P
Sustadur® PET thermoplastic polyester products are semi-crystalline materials that offer good wear resistance along with a combination of excellent thermal stability and chemical resistance.
Tecapet®PET is an unreinforced, semicrystalline thermoplastic polyester derived from polyethylene terephthalate. Its excellent wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, high flexural modulus, and superior dimensional stability make it a versatile material for designing mechanical and electro-mechanical parts.
Tecapet® TF is a material featuring an added solid lubricant with extremely good sliding friction properties which can also be used in the food processing sector.
