Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a robust, rigid engineering thermoplastic belonging to the polyester family. Exhibiting exceptional machining capabilities, bearing, and wear properties, PET plastic combines lightness, strength, and impact resistance. Its low moisture absorption, minimal thermal expansion, and chemical resistance make PET suitable for food processing machinery and other applications requiring dimensional stability in varying conditions. In summary, PET’s unique blend of characteristics renders it an effective material choice for diverse engineering applications.
