PET-GL - polyethylene terephthalate internally lubricated

Compare material
Other material names PET-GL: Ertalyte TX, PET-SP, PET+solid lubricant
Material group: 

PET-GL is an internally lubricated thermoplastic polyester providing enhanced wear and inertness over general purpose nylon (PA) and acetal (POM) products. Containing uniformly dispersed solid lubricant, PET-GL provides a lower wear rate and coefficient of friction than unmodified polyesters like PET or PBT and even internally lubricated materials like Delrin® AF blend.

PET-GL excels under both high pressure and velocity conditions. It is also ideally suited for applications involving soft metal and plastic mating surfaces.
