PET/PETP – Polytetrafluoroethylene
engineering plastic

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET or outdated PETP) is used for the production of precision components with a high demand to dimensional accuracy because of its very high dimensional stability and shape retention. In addition to the very good sliding properties, the semi-crystalline thermoplastic plastic PET is also characterised by its high hardness, rigidity and toughness.

PET is therefore used for many applications in various industries.  It is used, for example, as a sliding guide in mechanical engineering, as a scraper in the packaging industry, as an insulator in electrical engineering, or even as precision milled parts in the precision engineering market.

PVC - Polyvinyl chloride engineering plastic
engineering plastic

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is processed exclusively in the machining area as rigid PVC and, in this form, contains no plasticizers. PVC, due to its hardness, is also used in areas such as the construction industry as a window profile or in trade fair construction. Here, this thermoplastic offers advantages compared with other plastics, not least because of its low flammability and its self-extinguishing properties.

Moreover, PVC has very good adhesive properties so that, for example, the preassembly of modules such as pumps and valves is possible by bonding.

The hardness and stiffness of the material, in connection with the good chemical resistance, also allows the use of PVC in the area of container and apparatus construction, as well as in electrical engineering.
