The right semi-finished product for your application

Sheets, pipes, rods

PPSU, PSU, PEI

These three thermoplastic high-performance plastics feature a high-performance combination of thermal, electric and mechanical properties.
Thus the main areas of application are medical and sterilization technology in the form of inserts for cleaning equipment or as handles for surgical equipment.

MAIN PROPERTIES

  • High upper temperature limit for use in air (+180 °C, +170 °C and +150 °C continuously with PPSU 1000, PEI 1000 or PSU 1000)
  • High mechanical strength, rigidity and creep risistance over a wide range of temperatures
  • Excellent reistance to hydrolysis (suitable for repeated vapor sterilization)
  • High ductility, even at low temperatures
  • Harmless in physiological terms (suitable for contact with food)
  • Very high dimensional stability
  • Translucent, non-optical quality (except in the case of PPSU, which is black)
  • Very resistant to energy-rich radiation (gamma and X rays)
  • Good electric insulation properties and positive dielectric behavior
