Special plastics

PVDF - Polyvinylidene fluoride

PVDF is a highly crystalline unreinforced fluoropolymer combining good mechanical, thermal and electrical properties with excellent chemical resistance. Its property profile makes PVDF a versatile engineering material, especially suitable for the manufacture of components for the petrochemical, chemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, food, paper, textile and nuclear industries.

Duratrone® PBI - polybenzimidazol

Duratron® PBI is the highest performance engineering thermoplastic available today. It offers the highest heat resistance and mechanical property retention of any unfilled plastic It has better wear resistance and load carrying capabilities at extreme temperatures than any other reinforced or unreinforced engineering plastic.

Duratron® PAI - polyamidimid

Duratron PAI is the highest performing, melt processable plastic. It has superior resistance to elevated temperatures. It is capable of performing under severe stress conditions at continuous temperatures to 260°C. Parts machined from Duratron stock shapes provide greater compressive strength and higher impact resistance than most advanced engineering plastics.

Techtron® HPV PPS

PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) products offer the broadest resistance to chemicals of any advanced engineering plastic. They have no known solvents below 200°C and offer inertness to steam, strong bases, fuels and acids. Minimal moisture absorption and a very low coefficient of linear thermal expansion make these PPS products ideally suited for precise tolerance machined components. In addition, PPS products exhibit excellent electrical characteristics and are inherently flame retardant.
