Polyethylene-terephthalate (PET) bristles for brushes and brooms

Polyethylene-terephthalate bristles are more and more widely used materials in brush and broom industry due to their big heat resistance and excellent mechanical characteristics. PET regranulate – as end-product of waste processing – is a recycled raw material which can replace PVC since PET is more environment-friendly.

PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Density:                                                      1.37 – 1.40 g/cm3

Melting point:                                           245 - 260  ºC

Heat resistance:                                       70  ºC

Physical state:                                         semicrystalline

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE (on 20°C)

Polyethylene-terephthalate resists alkalis and solid acids slightly but to diluted acids, alcohol and organic solvents well.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Household and body-care brushes, brooms, industrial and technical brushes.
