  • The Effects of Temperature

    The polymers we work with follow the same principles as the body: the hotter the environment becomes, the less performance we can expect.

  • PBT & PET Polyester: Part 2 The Performance Factor

    All things being equal, PET will outperform PBT mechanically and thermally. But the processor must dry the material properly and must understand the importance of mold temperature in achieving a degree of crystallinity that allows the natural advantages of the polymer to be realized.
