Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a general-purpose thermoplastic polymer which belongs to the polyester family of polymers. Polyester resins are known for their excellent combination of properties such as mechanical, thermal, chemical resistance as well as dimensional stability.…
Blending of PET with other thermoplastics or thermosets is done to tailor new materials having improved performance with beneficial cost profiles to meet specific application demands. Blending also opens up new markets and applications potential without much investment and development.
Because Polyethylene Terephthalate is an excellent water and moisture barrier material, plastic bottles made from PET are widely used for mineral water and carbonated soft drinks
Its high mechanical strength, makes Polyethylene Terephthalate films ideal for use in tape applications
APPLICATIONS FOR POLYETHYLENE (PET):
- Fiber for carpet, fleece jackets, comforter fill, and tote bags.
- Containers for food, beverages(bottles), and non-food items.
- Film and sheet.
