POLYESTER (PET)

In addition to high tranparency and good thermal properties, one of the main strengths of POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE (PET) is its extremely easy and efficient, almost endless recycling possibilities.

 

PET was initially used in textile fiber and yarn applications. However, PET has been found to perform well in packaging and film applications as well. More recently, engineered resin applications have been developed for PET.

 

Textile applications utilize primarily PET homopolymer with IVs in the 0.60 – 0.70 range. Packaging and Film applications as well as Carpet Yarn utilize primarily PET copolymer (produced by adding Isophthalic Acid) with IVs in the 0.76 – 0.82 range.

 

Some specific applications for Barnet PET products are:

 
STAPLE FIBER
TEXTILE YARN
SHEET PRODUCTION FOR VACUUM FORMING
PACKAGING FILM PRODUCTION
STRAPPINGS
PREFORM-, BOTTLE PRODUCTION
SEMI FINISHED PRODUCTS / RODS
INJECTION MOLDING
