PPS Rods, Plates & Tubular Bars

Polyphenylene Sulphide (PPS) is suitable for high performance structural components requiring thermal stability, structural integrity, high dimensional stability and exceptional resistance to a broad range of acids, alkalis, ketones and hydrocarbons. PPS is inert to steam, compatible with common sterilization methods, and can be machined to tight tolerances.

 

Key Features
  • Excellent strength and rigidity up to 425°F continuous use with minimum decline in mechanical properties
  • Outstanding anti-fatigue and anti-creep properties
  • Superior chemical resistance
  • Excellent resistance to radiation?and inert to steam
  • Virtually no moisture absorption
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion, high dimensional stability
  • Outstanding electrical properties?at high frequency, high temp and high humidity
  • Inherently flame retardant (UL 94 V-0 rating)
Typical Applications
  • Electrical/Electronic components
  • Manifolds
  • Chemical pump and motor parts
  • Gears, rotors and rings
  • Valves
  • Compressor components
  • Sensor components
  • Wear plates
  • High pressure liquid chromatography components
