Chemical Resistance/Environmental Fluid Resistance
P.E.T. fibers are resistant to and will not show substantial loss of properties during or after 30 days immersion at 73F/23C in the following fluids; Water – Transmission Fluid – Salt Water Aviation (Jet) Fluid – Gasoline Ethylene Glycol – Motor Oil, Hydraulic Fluid – Hydrocarbon Solvents commonly used to clean electrical and electronic equipment. P. E. T. fibers will not degrade in UV light. They will retain their properties in temperatures from 125C to -70C per U.L. test methods.
