PET-G Engineering Plastic

Our PET-G engineering plastics are food, and 3A dairy approved.


PET-G (polyethylene terephthalate glycol) is a thermoplastic polyester used in a variety of engineering applications. The material offers very high dimensional stability combined with a very low moisture uptake (0.25%). With superior radiation resistance, PET-G offers improved acid resistance when compared to acetal or nylon. The creep resistance of the material is also very good.
