General Description:  

General Description : A semi-crystalline, white or off-white polyester similar in both composition and properties to polyethyleneterephthalate (PET). It has somewhat lower strength and stiffness than PET, is a little softer but has higher impact strength and very similar chemical resistance. As it crystallises more rapidly than PET, it tends to be preferred for industrial scale moulding.

Applications include electrical and automotive components (including "under-bonnet") and power tool casings.
