General Information

IPT offers a range of technologies for the polyester value chain. The preferred raw material for polyester production is Purified Terephthalic Acid or PTA. IPT provides leading technology for the manufacture of PTA.

PTA is reacted with Mono Ethylene Glycol to produce a polyester polymer, Poly Ethyl Terephthalate or PET. IPT has polymerization technology for the manufacture of PET polymer which is then used in container resin applications as well as for the manufacture of polyester staple fibre and filament yarn.

IPT – in collaboration with Chemtex International – provides a unique technology for the manufacture of staple fibre.

These three technologies form the basis of IPT’s technology licensing portfolio for the polyester value chain. Please click on the associated icons for more information.
