Product Family: Aromatic Polyester

Strength and versatility for demanding environments

Argotec’s aromatic polyesters are heavily used in the thermoplastic polyurethane industry. They are very strong, abrasion resistant and durable. Providing long-term stability they perform well in extreme conditions and harsh environments. Being puncture resistant and suitable for exposure to fuels and solvents they are frequently used in textile laminations, elastics and packaging. Having excellent heat-activated adhesion polyester films are also used in multi-layer laminations as an adhesive layer or a barrier layer. The rugged and reliable films can be found in a wide range of applications including conveyor belting, textile labeling, food processing, electronics, machinery and fuel lines.
