ertalyte-specsErtalyte – PETP has simular properties to acetal although it has a lower coefficient of friction and higher dimensional stability. Ertalyte has excellent wear resistance (comparable or even better then Nylon) and is widely used for gears, precision bushes and slide guides.

Ertalyte TX – The addition of an internal lubricant even further reduces the coefficient of friction and enables it to be used in high pressure-velocity applications. Ertalyte TX machines superbly and is food approved.
