Polyester sheets deliver the transparency of glass at just over half the weight. Combined with good impact resistance and safe fire behaviour, polyester satisfies many safety and durability requirements.
Our Marpet sheet products are Made in the UK by Brett Martin.
Easily formed and fabricated, polyester is ideal for applications such as point of purchase displays and street furniture. Being food approved as standard, according to FDA and EEC regulations, polyester is particularly suitable in areas where legislation would require it. With a low service temperature down to -40°C, this would also include use in refrigeration units.
The Benefits of APET and PETG Polyester
PETG Polyester has a light transmission of 90%, the same as that of glass, yet Polyester is half the weight and has superior impact resistance.
APET Polyester has been approved by FDA and EEC as a safe material to be used in environments where food hygiene legislation is required.
Polyester is a lightweight material with superior impact resistance, making it suitable for a large variety of applications.
Marpet PETg exhibits superior chemical resistance which means that the product’s strength, flexibility and appearance is unchanged by many chemicals, including cleaning agents, and atmospheric pollutants. This make it suitable for applications in industrial, commercial and residential settings.
The Difference Between APET and PETG Polyester
APET stands for Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate and PETG is Polyethylene terephthalate glycol, so the difference between the two is the chemical properties. Each polyester offers different benefits to the end-user, for example, PETG is offering great chemical resistance and suitable for thermoforming at relatively low temperatures.
APET has excellent scratch resistance and is ideal for flat applications.
