High Temperature Polymers

PPS – PolyPhenylene Sulfide
PPS is one of the most important high temperature thermoplastic polymers because it exhibits a number of desirable properties. These properties include resistance to: heat, acids, sunlight and abrasion. The material absorbs only small amounts of solvents and it resists dying. An easy way to identify the compound is by the metallic sound it makes when struck.

These polymers are known for their toughness and stability at high temperatures. Due to the high cost of raw materials and processing, polysulfones are used in specialty applications and often are a superior replacement for polycarbonates.
Three polysulfones are used industrially: polysulfone (PSU), polyethersulfone (PES) and polyphenylene sulfone (PPSU). They can be used in the temperature range from -100 to +200 °C and are used for electrical equipment, in vehicle construction and medical technology. Polysulfones have outstanding resistance to heat and oxidation, they are hydrolysis resistant and have good electrical properties.

We carefully select PES regrinds that can be used by compounders.

PEI – PolyEtherImide
PEI is an amorphous, amber-to-transparent thermoplastic with characteristics similar to the related plastic PEEK. This high strength material offers excellent chemical resistance and properties suitable for various applications, even for those including steam exposure. It can be used for components in the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

PEEK – PolyEtherKetone
PEEK is a workhorse – perhaps the closest to a perfect material that is utilized in a wide range of industries and in many different applications. It is known for its impressive durability in severe environments. Glass and carbon reinforced grades are among the strongest of all thermoplastics unfilled grades and they are highly resistant to some of the most chemically aggressive environments including high-pressure steam.

Because of its robustness, PEEK is used to fabricate items used in demanding applications, including bearings, piston parts and electrical cable insulation. PEEK is considered an advanced biomaterial used in medical implants.

PVDF – Fluoropolymers
PVDF is a speciality polymer used in applications requiring the highest purity level, as well as resistance to solvents, acids and hydrocarbons.
It is available as piping product, sheet, tubing, film, plate and an insulator for premium wire. It can be injected, moulded or welded and is commonly used in the chemical, semiconductor, medical and defence industries, as well as in lithium-ion batteries.
