Polyester resins are the least expensive of the resin options, providing the most economical way to incorporate resin, filler and reinforcement.
PET is an unreinforced, semi-crystalline 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. Because PET has no centerline porosity, the possibility of fluid absorption and leakage is virtually eliminated.
