Preliminary datasheet

PET – Polyethyleneterephthalate PET GF 40

PRECITE® E GF 40 natural (7304)

PRECITE® E GF 40 natural (7304) is a 40% glass fibre reinforced, medium viscous Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) with very high stiffness and toughness as well as high dimensional stability and chemical resistance.

Typical applications

Technical and precision parts in automobile, industrial, E/E and appliances industry

Processing information

The listed values are recommendations. Higher values should be used for higher glass loadings. We recommend only de-humidifying or vacuum dryers. Extensive drying can cause filling problems and surface defects.

Drying temperature (τ ≤ -30°C) 120 - 140°C

Processing moisture ≤ 0,02%

1 Feed section 60 - 80°C

2 Temperature zone 1 - Zone 4 270 - 290°C

3 Nozzle temperature 270 - 295°C

4 Melt temperature 270 - 290°C

5 Mold temperature 130 - 160°C

P Nach Holding pressure, spec. 300 - 800 bar

P Stau Back pressure, spec. 30 - 100 bar

Injection speed medium to high

Screw speed 8 - 15 m/min

Warning

Due to hydrolysis sensitivity of polyesters, a careful drying of the material before processing is very important. High residual moisture contents causes, in addition to surface defects, a decomposition of the molecular chains and thus reduced mechanical properties. If there are longer interruptions of the process, the cylinder temperature should be lowered. Furthermore, we recommend a thorough cleaning of the screw cylinder with extended dwell time or a material change. Glass-fiber-reinforced polyolefins (PE, PP) have established a particularly good cleaning effect.
