About INKUPET™ Plastics

INKUPET™ is a special compound based on PET (polyethylene terephthalate) that was specially developed by the Plastmass Group to replace polyacetal (POM) materials. Our new plastic compound has properties similar to polyacetal materials and serves as a cost-effective substitute without sacrificing technical properties and high quality. With its high mechanical strength and high wear resistance, our innovative material is ideal for machine components. The material can withstand high mechanical loads and has good sliding properties.  INKUPET™ sheets, tubes and rods are available from us in different sizes and colors.

Application Temperature

Our INKUPET™ plastic is suitable for applications in a temperature range from -60 °C to 110 °C.

Characteristics

  • Very high durability

  • Excellent wear resistance

  • High fatigue limit

  • High weather resistance

  • High elasticity

Chemical resistance

  • Very resistant to aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons, transformer oil and grease

  • Resistant to almost all oils and coolants

  • Some polyatomic alcohols, esters, and halogen-substituted hydrocarbons cause slight swelling

  • Absorbs almost no water (max. 0.3%)

  • Absorbed water does not act as a plasticizer

Not made for contact with

  • Mineral acids produce an oxidizing effect

  • Is soluble in concentrated alkaline solutions, phenols, cresols

  • Is not resistant to prolonged hot steam as it is prone to hydrolysis
