Thermoplastic Polyester Solutions

PBT and Cross-linkable Polyesters

Createc® thermoplastic polyesters are based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and offer excellent mechanical, electrical and thermal performance, as well as chemical resistance.  Compared to other engineering thermoplastics such as polyamides, Createc polyesters absorb significantly less moisture.  Low moisture uptake results in excellent dimensional stability, making these materials highly suitable for precision molding applications with tight tolerances, particularly for the automotive and E&E industries.

The Createc product portfolio boasts a broad range of PBT solutions, including grades that are unreinforced, glass or mineral reinforced, flame retardant, or impact modified. To achieve specific enhancement requirements, like reduced warpage or optimized surface appearance, connect with one of our engineering plastics experts to learn more about specialty PBT+PET blends. These materials are available in natural, black and custom colors.

Characteristics of Createc® Thermoplastic Polyesters


  • Low moisture uptake for superior dimensional stability
  • High heat resistance
  • High strength and stiffness
  • Chemical resistance
  • Excellent electrical properties
  • Highly aesthetic surface
  • Creep resistance
  • High flow


Createc® PBT Solutions

Compared to other polyesters, Createc PBT compounds process with ease. Due to greater spacing between the aromatic rings, PBT crystallizes more efficiently than PET, leading to faster cycle times and improved processing efficiencies. Highly aesthetic molded parts can be achieved even with a low mold temperature.

Createc® V: Cross-linkable Polyesters

Teknor Apex’s cross-linking technology enhances the performance of standard engineering thermoplastics, allowing manufacturers to meet more demanding requirements. If your current polyester solution is failing to meet critical mechanical, thermal, or electrical performance requirements, forcing you to evaluate expensive ultra-high performance alternatives, consider Createc V cross-linkable polyesters first. These materials are readily processed using standard thermoplastic injection molding equipment and tooling, and offer considerable economic advantages over ultra-high performance resins.
