The differences of Environmental Pe PET APET Pete PETG

PET and PETE are both short for polyethylene terephthalate.
Or PET-P for short. APET and PETG are PETde copolymers, also known as Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate, which are heat-shrinkable polyester films.
General Polyester.

 General Polyester is generally made from terephthalic acid (PTA ) and ethylene glycol (EG) through Esterification, polycondensation reaction, belongs to Crystalline Polymer (strictly speaking, is the coexistence of crystalline and Amorphous Polymer) . It is generally milky white or light yellow, highly crystalline polymer, smooth and shiny surface, products even at lower temperatures processing, do not add fillers can also remain transparent.
Excellent physical and mechanical properties
 Excellent physical and mechanical properties can be maintained over a wide range of temperatures, up to 120 degrees for long-term use. Good electrical insulation. Resistance to creep, friction and fatigue. Good dimensional stability. But because of its high glass transition temperature, low crystallization rate, processing molding difficult, high molding temperature, long production cycle, poor impact resistance. Therefore, it is necessary to improve the processing performance by means of reinforcement, filling and blending.
The uses of PET
The uses of PET can be divided into fibers (70% of the early use of synthetic fibers) and non-fibers. The latter include well-known packaging materials (food and beverage containers, vacuum packaging, etc.) , insulation, tape bases, film and photographic film, etc. .
