PBT is a semicrystalline polymer with excellent physical, chemical and electrical properties. It has a high melting point and good dimensional stability. PBT is also resistant to heat, UV light and chemicals.This material has excellent resistance to abrasion and creep. It has a low coefficient of friction and a low moisture absorption. PBT is chemically resistant to strong and weak acids. It is used in gears, bushings and bearings.

Key Features

Resistant to abrasion and creep • Low moisture absorption • Good impact and dimensional stability • Low co-efficient of thermal expansion
