Applications

Polyethylene terephthalate, commonly referred to by PET, is a member of the polyester family of polymers.The combination of properties like hardness and rigidity,dimensional stability, chemical resistance andlightweight, makes PET a flexible material widely used in several applications such as fibers, sheets, films,and beverage containers. Used in electrical parts including relay bases and lamp sockets, pump housings, gears, sprockets, chair arms, casters and furniture components. Like other polyesters, PET is produced industrially by direct esterification of dicarboxylic acids with diols.Typical production processes are based on polymerization of ethylene glycol (MEG) with either purifiedterephthalic acid (PTA) or dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) in the presence of a metal catalyst.
