Polybutylene Terephthalate(PBT)

- May 08, 2018 -

Polybutanediol terephthalate, also known as polyethylene terephthalate tetramethyl Ester. Referred to as PBT PBTP or PTMT, it is a polycondensation of p-benzoic acid and 1,4-butanediol.

Production methods:

Made by condensation by Ester exchange or direct lithification


PBT is milky white translucent to opaque, crystalline thermoplastic polyester. It has high heat resistance, toughness, fatigue resistance, self-lubrication, low friction coefficient, weather resistance, low water absorption, only 0.1 %, and maintains a variety of physical properties(including electrical properties) in a humid environment. Electric insulation, but the dielectric loss is large. Resistance to hot water, alkaloids, acids, oils, but vulnerable to halogenated hydrocarbons erosion, poor hydrolysis resistance, rapid crystallization at low temperatures, good shape.

The application of PBT;

A, electronic appliances: connectors, switch parts, household appliances, accessories parts, small electric cover or (heat resistance, flame retardancy, electrical insulation, molding processing);

B, car:

1, external parts: the main corner of the Granger, the engine exothermic hole cover;

2. Internal components: endoscopic brackets, wiper support and control system valves.

3, automotive electrical parts: automotive ignition coil coils and various electrical connectors.

(the number of PBT used in cars is less than nylon, carbon and polyoxymethylene, but with the emergence of low warp PBT, it will be more used in automotive parts and parts in the future).

C, mechanical equipment: tape drive shaft of video tape recorder, electronic computer hood, mercury lampshade, electric iron cover, baking machine parts, and large numbers of gear, cam, button, electronic meter shell, camera parts (heat-resistant, flame retardant requirements)
