PRECITE® PBT


Precision to Detail

AKRO-PLASTIC is excited to launch its new PRECITE® product line for thermoplastic polyester compounds, based on PBT, PET and different blends. PBT compounds are used in applications that require high precision, tight tolerances, good mechanical properties as well as superior heat aging performance. Through the low moisture absorption, PBT compounds have an exceptional dimensional stability, making them the first choice for precision parts majorly in the automotive or E/E industry.

The extraordinary high repeatability and accuracy of AKRO-PLASTIC’s global ICX technology fits well to high precision demanded for PBT applications.
The PRECITE® portfolio focuses on glass fibre reinforced PBT up to 50 %.

Additionally, low warpage blends like PBT/ASA are available, as well as blends with improved surface quality based on PBT/PC or PBT/PET. We also offer PRECITE® with our unique affordable carbon fibre reinforcement, ICF.

Applications

PRECITE® has a unique combination of properties to accomplish the high requirements of a variety of complex applications. The most important markets for PRECITE® are the automotive and E/E industry as well as appliances. Generally, PBT is the material of choice for applications with high demands to dimensional stability, strength and rigidity as well as heat aging performance.

Especially in automotive, the dimensional stability, the resistance against fuels and lubricants as well as the good long-term thermal behavior enable PRECITE® to be the first choice for many components in the electric segment. Typical applications are fuse boxes, door locking modules as well as housings for electric motors for wipers, window lift or seat adjustment. Also small components like connectors and switches with tight tolerances require the precision of PBT compounds.

In opposite to nylons the high stiffness of PRECITE® is independent from moisture. Along with the weather resistance, PRECITE® can be also used for exterior applications like wiper arms, mirror housings as well as elements of sunroofs.Furthermore, the color stability, also at elevated temperatures, enables visible applications in the E/E and appliance sector, like oven handles, knobs or switches as well as light bulb housings.
