ERTALYTE®  TX - PET + Solid Lubricant


  • High mechanical strength, stiffness and hardness
  • Very good creep resistance
  • Low and constant coefficient of friction
  • Excellent wear resistance (comparable to or even better than nylon grades)
  • Very good dimensional stability (better than acetal)
  • Excellent stain resistance
  • Better resistance to acids than nylon or acetal
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Physiologically inert (suitable for food contact)
  • Good resistance to high energy radiation (gamma- and X-rays)

ERTALYTE® TX is a polyethylene terephthalate compound incorporating a uniformly dispersed solid lubricant. Its specific formulation makes it a premium internally lubricated bearing-grade. ERTALYTE® TX not only has an outstanding wear resistance, but offers in comparison with ERTALYTE® an even lower coefficient of friction as well as higher pressure-velocity capabilities.
