TECAPET®/1400® are both unreinforced, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester derived from polyethylene terephthalate. Their excellent wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, high flexural modulus, and superior dimensional stability make it a versatile material for designing mechanical and electro- mechanical parts. Because TECAPET®/1400® has no centerline porosity, the possibility of fluid absorption and leakage is virtually eliminated.
TECAPET®/1400® both have superior wear resistance and lack of centerline porosity give it an advantage over other materials for applications involving solvents, chemicals, and food products. TECAPET®/1400® can also be used in water purification systems, printing equipment, textile components, food-handling equipment, and valves.
