Polytrimethylene Terephthalate Production Cost Analysis 2020
Polytrimethylene terephthalate, which is also known as PTT, is an example of a polyester that was synthesized and patented in 1941. It is manufactured by a process, which is termed as condensation polymerisation or transesterification. The two monomer units that are often used in manufacturing this polymer are 1,3-propanediol and terephthalic acid or dimethyl terephthalate, i.e., DMT. Just like the ubiquitous poly or ethylene terephthalate, this polymer is also produced by the esterification of 1,3-propanediol along with terephthalic acid or by the transesterification of DMT.
Compared to PBT, compounds composed of polytrimethylene terephthalate have better tensile strengths, flexural strengths, and stiffness. They also have excellent flow with a surface finish. Polytrimethylene terephthalate is also more cost-effective than PBT. Just like PBT, polytrimethylene terephthalate has an excellent resistance to a broad range of chemicals at room temperatures. Impact modifiers and reinforcing fibres like the long glass, short glass, or carbon can be used to increase the impact properties of polytrimethylene terephthalate. These are also used to boost the strength and stiffness of polytrimethylene terephthalate.
