PCT-G - Poly Cyclohexylenedimethylene Terephthalate glycol-modified

TECADUR Ensinger Plastics

Poly Cyclohexylenedimethylene Terephthalate glycol-modified, otherwise known as PCT-G plastic is a clear co-polyester. PCT-G polymer is particularly suited for applications requiring very low extractables, high clarity and very high gamma stability. The material is also characterised by high impact properties. It exhibits many of the properties of polycarbonate with the advantage of containing no BPA, BPS or any other bisphenols.
