Tarnodur A (PBT) - polybutylene terephthalate

Polybutylene terephthalate is generated as a result of the polycondensation of terephthalic acid and butyl alcohol (1,4-butanediol).
A crystalline polymer. Density: 1.31 g/cm3. Mechanical characteristics lower than those of PET. Good rheological properties. PBT is resistant to stress corrosion and thermal ageing. Resistant to water, weak acids, oils and fats. Not resistant to concentrated acids, alkalis, phenols. Regular contact with hot water causes hydrolysis.
