Key Properties

Cheaper than Polycarbonate with 80% of impact resistance. Similarly low wear resistance and toughness as Nylon. Dimensional stability and minimal creep of ACETAL. Low friction. Low moisture absorption. Can be used with foodstuffs.

Strengths

  • High mechanical properites (stiffness, hardness and toughness)
  • Broad range of use temperature (from -40 to 130°C)
  • High resistance to creep and fatigue
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • High wear resistance
  • Good insulating properties
  • Low water absorption
  • Good chemical resistance, in particular with oils and lubricants
  • Optical transparency
  • Easy to fabricate
  • Ability to be sterilized
  • FDA compliant
  • Easy to form

Limits

  • High shrinkage (~2%), due to its high crystallinity
  • Attacked by oxidizing or strong acids and strong bases
  • Low resistance to UV and gamma radiation
  • Flammable, releases some formaldehyde (highly odourous)
  • Opaque
  • Cannot be used above 60 - 66°C

PETG & APET - Colours

Colours

PET(G) is current available in clear only.

Some thinner thicknesses of the sister polymer APET are available in an "Anti-Reflective" finish which is also called "Anti-Glare".
