I'm an EE, but I'm working on a project at work where I need to venture into materials science & chemistry.

My question is, does thermoplastic, Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), fall into any of these material categories?

  • $\begingroup$ @JonathanRSwift. Your feedback is noted, but I disagree. In this case context would just muddy up what should be a relatively straightforward answer to a relatively straightforward question. $\endgroup$ – WHL Dec 14 '18 at 19:29

No . A more common polymer is polyethylene terepthalate ( PET) from which many bottles are made . I guess they would be the same group if it has a name.
