We offer two grades of PET at Protolabs:
- Rynite 530 (30% Glass Filled)
- Rynite 935 (35% Glass Filled)
Both grades are similar in that they are UV-resistant polymers with a well-rounded thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties. The thermoplastic material is well-suited for electrical applications. Rynite also flows well into the mold so it can more easily fill thin walls and complex features.
Key benefits of PET:
- Dimensional stability
- UV resistance
- Natural high-gloss surface finish
