What is PET?
Polyethylene terephthalate is a thermoplastic and is used in synthetic fibers, food, beverage containers, and other pressable liquids. It belongs to the Polyester plastic, and is often combined with fiberglass in spraying to shape and industry.( See more: PET Bottle on bales )
PET is used to package 70% of carbonated soft drinks, fruit juices, dilutable drinks, and bottled water. Safe, light, durable, and with a smaller carbon footprint than alternatives, PET is the most recyclable plastic in the world. This unique material is vitally important as what our products are packaged with can have significant impacts on our environment and the sustainability of our economy. PET offers a number of advantages.
The basic building blocks of PET are terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol, which are combined to form a polymer chain. The resulting spaghetti-like strands of PET are quickly cooled, extruded, and cut into small pellets. Then, the resin pellets are heated to a molten liquid that can be easily molded or extruded into items of practically any shape.( See more: PET Bottle Regrind )
Properties of PET
PET is colorless, highly flexible, and semi-crystalline resin in its natural state. It can be semi-rigid to rigid depending on how it is processed. It shows resistance to impact, good dimensional stability, moisture, alcohols, and solvents.
PET grades include un-reinforced to glass reinforced, flame retardant, and high flow materials for various engineering applications that typically require higher strength and or higher heat resistance. Addition of fillers such as CNTs, glass fibers, etc. help enhance impact strength, reduce warpage, surface finish, and several other benefits.
The main benefits and features of PET are listed below.
- Very strong and lightweight & hence easy and efficient to transport
- Be known for its good gas (oxygen, carbon dioxide) and moisture barrier properties
- Exhibit excellent electrical insulating properties
- Have broad range of use temperature, from -60 to 130°C
- Be suitable for transparent applications, when quenching during processing
- PET doesn’t break or fracture. It is shatter-resistant and hence, a suitable glass-replacement in some applications
- Be recyclable and transparent to microwave radiation
- Great resistance to aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, oils, grease, and diluted acids
- Moderate resistance to aromatic & halogenated hydrocarbons, diluted alkalis
Application of PET in life
PET is used as bottles, containers of pure water, carbonated soft drinks because of its high waterproofing. What is more, in the production of shaped plastic, PET is also widely used in the manufacture of plastic food trays thanks to its air permeability and safety at high temperatures.( See more: PET Sheet )
Broadly used in paper machinery, textile, food, seaports, transportation, healthcare, mining, chemicals, and industries.
Casing covers, bearing parts, pump parts, plugs, spare parts, pistons, screws, fasteners in food, precision machinery, insulating materials, and bearings, are subject to high loads.
It is also common for packaging salad dressings, peanut butter, cooking oils, mouthwash, shampoo, liquid hand soap, window cleaner, and even tennis balls. PET’s special grades are also used for carry-home food containers and prepared food trays that can be warmed in the oven or microwave.( See more: PP Natural Sheet)
