Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)

Polyethylene terephthalate, better known as PET, is a linear thermoplastic polymer, belonging to the polyester group, which is obtained from the polycondensation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. It is characterised by its high resistance to wear and corrosion, as well as its high degree of transparency and crystallinity.


Acid resistance
Crystallinity and transparency
Good thermal properties
High rigidity and hardness

The main applications of PET are beverage bottles, thermoformed packaging radiographic plates, textile fibres, strapping, foils and cosmetic packaging.

Other products

Polyethylen (PE)

Polyethylene is a thermoplastic of the olefin family, consisting of repeating ethylene units. Chemically, it is considered to be the polymer with the simpleststructure and is characterised by its flexibility and strength.

Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer obtained from the polymerisation ofpropylene, a by-product of petroleum refining. It is divided into three main groups: Polypropylene copolymer, Polypropylene homopolymer and Polypropylene copolymer random. PP is the basic plastic with the lowest density, between 0.895 and 0.92 g/cm3, and is characterised by its mechanical properties, its high resistance to various acids, chemical solvents, and its dual task as a plastic and as a fibre.

Polystyrene (PS)

Polystyrene is made by polymerising styrene monomer, a liquid petrochemical. It is a hard, solid thermoplastic at room temperature that softens and moulds easily when heated. Its durability and lightness are excellent, as are its insulation and damping properties.
