PET is a thermoplastic polyester based on polyethylene terephthalate. The general characteristics of such material are high toughness and tensile strength to bending higher than the polyamide, which together with its high wear resistance becomes indispensable this material for gears and bushings. Very low friction coefficient. Thermal conductivity: superior to other resins, which facilitates the dispersion of heat into the pieces. Softening Point (Vicat) between the highest, which makes it suitable for high temperature stationary parts. For dynamic parts under load, it is advisable to use up to 120 ° C continuous and 170 ° C for a short time. Dimensional stability at both temperature and moisture. Chemically, PET has a high resistance to aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons and oils and fats. Diluted acids and alkaline salt solutions do not, do not attack the material. PET has excellent dielectric properties and it is nonflammable. The machining of PET are suitable for lubricating gears silent, bushings and bearings with very low friction coefficient (less than bronze), skids and slides, rollers, conveyor wheels, etc.
