ERTALYTE® TX is an internally lubricated thermoplastic polyester providing enhanced wear and inertness over general purpose nylon (PA) and acetal (POM) products. Containing uniformly dispersed solid lubricant, ERTALYTE® TX provides a lower wear rate and coefficient of friction than unmodified polyesters like PET or PBT and even internally lubricated materials like Delrin AF blend.

Key Benefits:

  • Outstanding wear resistance
  • Non-staining
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • FDA compliance

  • Low water absorption
  • Easy to Machine


  • Linear bearings
  • Wear and slide pads
  • Dynamic seals
  • Scraper blades
  • Thrust washers
  • Valve seals
