TECAPET white

PET polyester white

TECAPET PET polyester from Ensinger is specially formulated to provide improved toughness, and enhanced machinability. This PET polyester also offers excellent sliding and wear properties, and a low coefficent of friction. TECAPET's superior chemical resistance, non staining characteristics, and distinct lack of centerline porosity, makes it a desirable material for a variety of applications especially in the food industry that might involve solvents, cleaning chemicals, or direct food contact.
