About Polybutylene Terephthalate. 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. In addition, this commodity is solvent resistant, barely shrinks during forming, and is mechanically strong.

Polybutylene Terephthalate Handling. Recommended materials for bulk storage of the PBT include LDPE, HDPE, Aluminum, and Carbon Steel (grounded). Such containers should be protected from direct sunlight and in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from strong oxidizing materials.

Polybutylene Terephthalate Production. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Polybutylene Terephthalate are listed below.

  • 1,4-butanediol + terephthalic acid/dimethyl terephthalate (ester formation)

Polybutylene Terephthalate Uses. The uses and applications of Polybutylene Terephthalate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polybutylene Terephthalate are FDA grade; and USDA grade.
