SUSTADUR« Polyethylene Terephthalate is a partially crystalline thermoplastic polyester.
It has high mechanical strength, good resistance to creep, excellent dimensional stability, abrasion resistance and excellent sliding properties.
Although it absorbs very little moisture SUSTADUR« does suffer from hydrolysis and should not be used in aqueous applications at temperatures above 70║ C or steam environments.
SUSTADUR« is FDA approved.
It also has superior wear resistance compared to Acetal copolymer and is an excellent candidate for close tolerance parts.
Applications: Journal bearings, slide bearings, high pressure wear plates.DOWNLOAD DATA SHEET
