Properties and Applications of PETN Copolymers and PEN/PET Blends

Understanding how the use of NDC as a co-monomer to modify many PET polymers (including PEN) can result in enhanced properties. These new high-performance resins will enable applications requiring higher heat deflection temperature, better mechanical stability and improved stress cracking such as the plastic aerosol can.
