Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)
- Ideally suited to the production of challenging extrusion profiles thanks to its highly resistant characteristics: can withstand high temperatures, pressure and the impact of aggressive chemical substances
- A high-performance plastic that is especially suited to applications in the automotive, electronics, aviation and building equipment industry. PPS meets all required standards and specifications in these industries
- Flame-resistant by nature, it meets the fire testing standard V-0 according to UL94
Strong and stable
PPS can withstand very high pressure and the impact of aggressive chemical substances. This plastic is especially hard and stiff, plus it has a high creep resistance. This way, even if forces act on it over an extended period, it does not deform.
You can also use a PPS plastic profile at temperatures of up to 240 °C without it melting, smouldering or deforming. This plastic is flame-resistant by nature and thus meets the fire testing standard V-0 according to UL94. PPS does not dissolve in any organic solvent below 200 °C and is also not attacked by acids, bases, alcohols, bleaching agents and many more chemicals at elevated temperatures over a longer period.
A strong economic alternative
With its significantly lower material price, PPS is an alternative for instance to polyetherimide (PEI) which is frequently used in the aviation industry – all without having to compromise in terms of functionality. The characteristics of this high-performance plastic make it especially suited to be applied in the automotive, electronics, aviation and building equipment industry, meeting all required standards and specifications in all these industries.
