PBT/PET Compound PBT-PET- GF 50

PRECITE® K GF 50 8 natural (8446)

PRECITE® K GF 50 8 natural (8446) is a 50% glass fibre reinforced PBT/PET with very high strength. Due to its low moisture absorption, this material has very good dimensional stability. This grade corresponds to the European food guideline EU 10/2011 and to the American FDA 21 CFR. Because of its very good surface, it is perfectly suited for kitchen and household appliances.

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.

2 Temperature zone 1 - Zone 4 260 - 280°C

3 Nozzle temperature 260 - 290°C

4 Melt temperature 270 - 280°C

5 Mold temperature 80 - 100°C

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.
