The PET Rod is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester which exhibits high tensile strength and wear resistance properties. Good chemical resistance to organic chemicals and oils (but note that the material is attacked by oxidised mineral acids and hydrolysed by hot water). The material has excellent dimensional stability, both in terms of low moisture absorption and good creep resistance. Also suitable for food contact. Used for brushes, bearings, sliding parts, gears, cams, rollers, etc.
