Description

MSDS for Ertalyte TXMSDS for Ertalyte TX

Ertalyte TX is a polyethylene terephtalate compound incorporating a uniformly dispersed solid lubricant. Its specific formulation yields a premium, internally lubricated bearing-grade. Ertalyte TX has not only an outstanding wear resistance, but offers in comparison with Ertalyte and even lower coefficient of friction as well as higher Pressure-Velocity capabilities.

Key Features and Benefits:

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

Polyester Plastics Applications:

  • Precision gears and bearings
  • Thrust washers
  • Pump components
  • Slideways
  • Components for mechanisms
    of precisions
