PET – Polyethyleneterephthalate PET CF20PRECITE® E ICF 20 black (7428)
PRECITE® E ICF 20 black (7428) is a medium viscosity polyethylene terephthalate (PET) with 20% recycled carbon fiber. Despite lower density compared to PET with glass fiber reinforcement, the product has very high strength and toughness as well as high dimensional stability. The good tribological properties and improved surface finish make it the material of choice for precision components in the automotive, mechanical engineering, E&E and household goods industries.

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.

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.
