Polyethylene Terephthalate

We, Hir Primak Enterprise, are actively engaged in importing, exporting and supplying Polyethylene terephthalate(PET) which is a general purpose plastic produced by the polymerization of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. Ethylene glycol is a colourless liquid obtained from ethylene, and terephthalic acid is a crystalline solid obtained from xylene.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PETE or PET) is the most commonly used thermoplastic polymer in the world and is better known in the textile industry by the trade name “polyester.” It is used as an effective moisture barrier with wide applicability in bottling and packaging, and as an engineering plastic when it is combined with other materials like glass fiber or carbon nanotubes to significantly increase the material’s strength.

PET is widely used to make bottles, APET sheets, strappings and monofilaments.It is available in various viscosities, starting from 0.76 to 0.84, suitable for a wide range of applications.

PET is unique in that it is virtually shatterproof, has an extremely high strength to weight ratio and does not react to food and water. The combination of these material properties in addition to its wide availability and low price make it a nearly unbeatable solution for consumable product packaging.

Polyester for fabrics is strong, flexible, and when combined with materials like cotton can reduce wrinkling, shrinking, and makes the fabric more resistant to tears.
