B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply is a distributor of PET-P sheet/plate and rod.
(PET-P) polyethylene terephthalate is characterized as having the best dimensional stability coupled with excellent wear resistance, a low coefficient of friction, high strength, and resistance to moderately acidic solutions. PET-P properties make it especially suitable for the manufacture of precision mechanical parts which are capable of sustaining high loads and enduring wear conditions. PET-P continuous service temperature is 210°F (100°C) and its melting point is almost 150°F higher than acetals. It retains significantly more of its original strength up to 180°F (85°C) than nylon or acetal. PET-P is an off-white color. PET-P is similar/equal to Ertalyte®.
PET-P offers good chemical and abrasion resistance. Its low moisture absorption enables mechanical and electrical properties to remain virtually unaffected by moisture. PET-P can be machined to precise detail on standard metal working equipment.
PET-P is a product that bridges the gap between Acetal and Advanced Engineering Plastics offering increased strength and stiffness with enhanced chemical resistance even at elevated temperatures up to 210°F (100°C)
PET-P is FDA compliant in natural and black. Natural PET-P is also USDA, 3A-Dairy and Canada AG compliant. PET-P is an excellent candidate for parts used in the food processing and equipment industries. PET-P is also referred to as Ertalyte®.
