Polybutylene Terephthalate (a.k.a. PBT) is a crystalline thermoplastic polyester resin with qualities ideally suited to an injection molding resin. PBT has similar properties and composition to polyethylene terephthalate. It is obtained by polycondensation of terephthalic acid or 1,4-butanediol with dimethyl terephthalate. Examples of PBT products include housings for heated domestic appliances, gear wheels, fan wheels, capacitor covers, among others.
