PPS - Polyphenylene Sulfide (Generic) is available in Virgin (unfilled) or 40% Glass-Filled Grades
Linear polyphenylene sulphide is a partially crystalline material
that provides very high mechanical performance combined with
excellent resistance to heat and chemicals (continuous service
temperature resistance up to approximately + 464 °F), high
dimensional stability and creep strength. Its LOI is one of the
highest among polymers. Excellent hardness and rigidity are other
characteristics of PPS. By virtue of its strength and affordability,
it bridges the gap between the partially crystalline industrial plastics
and PEEK. Thanks to reinforcement with 40% glass fibres,
strengths are attained that are comparable with light metals.
Components in equipment construction, pump parts, fan elements, impellers, valve balls/seats/
seals, plastic parts and motor vehicle parts.
We offer PPS and PPS-40GF rods from in 3/4" to 2" diameters.
