- About us
Ertalyte is a non-reinforced, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester based on polyethylene terephthalate (PET-P). It is made from proprietary resins made by Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials. The material is characterized by the best dimensional stability in combination with excellent wear resistance, a low coefficient of friction, high strength and resistance to moderately acidic solutions. The properties of Ertalyte make it particularly suitable for the manufacture of precision mechanical parts that can withstand high loads and long-term wear conditions. Ertalyte's continuous use temperature is 210 ° F (100 ° C) and its melting point is nearly 150 ° F higher than acetals.
Ertalyte offers good chemical and abrasion resistance. Due to the low moisture absorption, mechanical and electrical properties remain virtually unaffected by moisture. Ertalyte can be machined in detail on standard metalworking equipment.
Ertalyte is available in a "Food Grade" certified version and therefore suitable for use in the food industry. Lakwijk is completely at home in this certification.
Ertalyte is available in natural (white) and on request also in black.
The material is an excellent candidate for manufacturing parts used in the food processing industry, machine and equipment construction.
