  • Thermoplastic Polyesters: It's Time to Know Them Better

    There’s more to TP polyesters than you think. You may know PET, PBT, and PETG—but what about PCT, PCTG, PCTA, and PTT? If you’re not sure what they are, how their properties compare, and who sells them, we have the answers—and lots of new developments to report.

  • The Importance of Melt & Mold Temperature

    Molders should realize how significantly process conditions can influence the final properties of the part.

  • 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.
