High performance plastics are valued for their excellent properties, and used in many demanding applications. High performance plastics such as PEEK, PEI, PSU, FEP and PTFE are characterised by their extraordinary properties in various areas. High performance plastics are primarily used where high demands are placed on the mechanics, the chemical or thermal resistance or on the slippage of the products. PEEK, especially, is an excellent metal substitute for medical applications where the biocompatibility of the material is important. Another example of the high demands on the plastic is the multiple sterilisation cycle with hot steam which are usually only possible with metal-based materials. Even the extremely high pressure requirements for thin-walled extrusions can only be achieved by using high performance plastics.

ULTEM is an amber transparent high performance polymer which combines high strength and rigidity at elevated temperatures with long term heat resistance. Other features include flame retardant making it suitable for aircraft and aerospace applications. Good chemical resistance and FDA compliance leads to numerous applications. Ultem offers excellent dimensional stability combined with broad chemical resistance. Ultem is also inherently flame resistant and low smoke generating. It excels in medical reusable applications requiring repeated sterilization.
Noryl® modified PPO (Polyphenylene Oxide - Styrene) is an alloy of PPO and styrene.It is considered an ideal engineering plastic choice due to excellent mechanical, thermal and electrical properties combined with good hydrolytic stability over a wide range of temperature and humidity. Noryl is widely used for electrical and structural components since it has excellent insulating properties, flame resistance and self-extinguishing properties (UL – 94) V – 0 @ 0.240” thickness and dimensional stability over a wide range of service temperatures. It is often selected for fluid handling applications since it has low moisture absorption and excellent strength and stiffness. Because of its alloy matrix composition, it is also one of the few non-metallic materials which can be readily electroplated (after an electroless plating surface has been applied using a selective etching process).It is easy to fabricate, paint, and glue. It may be used continuously at temperatures in excess of 110°C.
