Arnite® PBT and PET: Strong and rigid
Arnite (PBT, PET, and blends) is a high-performance engineering plastic that is strong and rigid with many excellent processing characteristics. All of which makes it well suited for a broad range of demanding automotive applications like brake booster valve bodies where reinforced fiber-glass grades provide added strength and stiffness.
Arnite is being used in a variety of automotive applications including connectors, sensors, gear and brake systems. It’s available in unreinforced, reinforced and flame retardant grades and offers you a wide range of attractive properties.
Arnite offers extremely low moisture absorption and exceptional dimensional stability as well as excellent electrical insulation properties (at elevated temperatures and humidity).
The material also offers excellent chemical resistance, good thermal resistance and heat aging properties, and high-strength and stiffness in reinforced grades.
Arnite is easy to mold, has good wear resistance - and very good color stability.
