Ertalyte TX offers greater war resistance and dimensional stability than Acetal or Nylon

Quadrant EPP : 29 October, 2001  (New Product)
Ertalyte TX has wear-resistance and dimensional stability surpassing other common wear grade plastics, and excellent resistance to many harsh chemicals, including aggressive food products, cleaning solutions and petroleum products. It outlasts unfilled nylons by a minimum factor of 8 and lasts a minimum of 50 times longer than unfilled acetals.
Ertalyte TX has wear-resistance and dimensional stability surpassing other common wear grade plastics, and excellent resistance to many harsh chemicals, including aggressive food products, cleaning solutions and petroleum products. It outlasts unfilled nylons by a minimum factor of 8 and lasts a minimum of 50 times longer than unfilled acetals. Even industry-standard wear materials like PTFE filled acetal and oil filled nylon are no match for the performance of Ertalyte TX. Because of the material's unique composition, its wear resistance increases as bearing velocities increase. Adding to the product's strengths are its ability to maintain tight dimensions and close tolerances in wet environments unsuitable for nylon materials.

Ertalyte TX is one of Quadrant's expanding range of Extreme Materials, an enhanced-performance product line based on the company's proprietary technology and formulations. Offered in rod and sheet, Ertalyte TX is used for machined mechanical components, involving both high-pressure and high-velocity conditions. The enhanced wear material is also well-suited for applications involving soft metal and plastic mating surfaces, including gears and bearings which require no startup or running lubrication. Further, since Ertalyte TX has FDA and USDA compliance, it can be used for machined components for food packaging and processing equipment.

Ertalyte TX, developed and manufactured by Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products, is an unreinforced, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester (PET-P) with an integral solid lubricant for improved wear and slip-stick resistance. It is available from stock in many rod and sheet sizes. Custom sized rod and sheet as well as tubular shapes are possible.
