PET material main performance


Common in mineral water bottles, carbonated beverage bottles. When the temperature reached 70 ℃ easily deformed, high temperature can not be installed wine, oil and other substances.

PET is a milky white or light yellow highly crystalline polymer with a smooth and shiny surface. Creep resistance, fatigue resistance, abrasion resistance and good dimensional stability, small wear and hardness, with the greatest toughness in thermoplastics: good electrical insulation, little affected by temperature, but less resistant to corona. Non-toxic, weather-resistant, good chemical stability, low water absorption, resistance to weak acids and organic solvents, but not soaked in hot water, not alkali.

PET resin has high glass transition temperature, slow crystallization rate, long molding cycle, long molding cycle, large molding shrinkage, poor dimensional stability, crystallized molding with brittleness and low heat resistance.

Through the nucleating agent and the enhancement of the crystallizer and the glass fiber, PET has the following features in addition to the properties of PBT.

1. Heat distortion temperature and long-term use temperature is the highest thermoplastic general engineering plastics

2. Because of high heat resistance, enhanced PET immersed in solder bath at 250 ℃ 10S, almost no deformation nor discoloration, especially for the preparation of soldered electronic and electrical parts.

3. Bending strength 200MPa, elastic modulus of 4000MPa, creep resistance and fatigue resistance is also very good, high surface hardness, mechanical properties and thermosetting plastic similar.

4. PET resins and reinforced PET are the cheapest among engineering plastics due to the almost half the price of ethylene glycol used to make PET compared to the butanediol used to make PBT, which is cost-effective.

To improve PET performance, PET can be alloyed with PC, elastomer, PBT, PS, ABS, PA.

PET (Reinforced PET) is mainly processed by injection molding. Other methods include secondary processing such as extrusion, blow molding, coating and welding, sealing, machining and vacuum coating. Before forming to be fully dry.

Polyethylene terephthalate is formed by the transesterification of dimethylterephthalate with ethylene glycol or the esterification of terephthalic acid with ethylene glycol to form bis (hydroxyethyl) terephthalate, followed by Polycondensation reaction system. A crystalline saturated polyester, the average molecular weight (2-3) × 104, weight average molecular weight ratio of 1.5-1.8. Glass transition temperature 80 ℃, Martin heat-resistant 80 ℃, heat distortion temperature 98 ℃ (1.82MPa), decomposition temperature 353 ℃. Has excellent mechanical properties. High rigidity. Hardness, water absorption is small, good dimensional stability. Good toughness, impact resistance, abrasion resistance, creep resistance. Good chemical resistance, soluble in cresol, concentrated sulfuric acid, nitrobenzene, trichloroacetic acid, chlorophenol, insoluble in methanol, ethanol, acetone, alkanes. Operating temperature -100 ~ 120 ℃. Bending strength 148-310MPa
