Polyethylene naphthalate is a polyester resin derived from naphthalene-2, 6-dicarboxylic acid, and ethylene glycol. It is chemically quite similar to polyethylene terephthalate, however, it exhibits superior temperature-resistant properties. Polyethylene naphthalate is available only as biaxially oriented and heat stabilized films. These films are semi-crystalline and colorless, either crystal clear or slightly hazy. These films display improved UV resistance and barrier properties. Thus, polyethylene naphthalate films have emerged as a key component of food packaging applications. These films are also utilized in the production of pressure-sensitive tapes and thermal sheets.
Polyethylene naphthalate (poly(ethylene 2,6-naphthalate) or PEN) is a polyester derived from naphthalene-2,6-dicarboxylic acid and ethylene glycol. As such it is related to poly(ethylene terephthalate), but with superior barrier properties.
Two major manufacturing routes exist for polyethylene naphthalate (PEN), i.e. an ester or an acid process, named according to whether the starting monomer is a diester or a diacid derivative, respectively. In both cases for PEN, the glycol monomer is ethylene glycol. Solid-state polymerization (SSP) of the melt-produced resin pellets is the preferred process to increase the average molecular weight of PEN.
Because it provides a very good oxygen barrier, it is well-suited for bottling beverages that are susceptible to oxidation, such as beer. It is also used in making high-performance sailcloth.
Significant commercial markets have been developed for its application in textile and industrial fibers, films, and foamed articles, containers for carbonated beverages, water, and other liquids, and thermoformed applications. It is also an emerging material for modern electronic devices.
PEN is used for manufacturing high-performance fibers that have very high modulus and better dimensional stability than PET or Nylon fibers.
PEN is used as the substrate for most Linear Tape-Open (LTO) cartridges.
It also has been found to show excellent scintillation properties and is expected to replace classic plastic scintillators.
