Radel® R-5500 - PPSU Rod & Sheet
OVERVIEW
Radel® R-5500 polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) is an amorphous high performance thermoplastic offering better impact resistance and chemical resistance than polysulfone and polyetherimide (Ultem* PEI). Radel R has virtually unlimited steam sterilizability. This factor makes it an excellent choice for medical devices as steam autoclaves are widely used to sterilize medical devices. Radel R is stocked in natural (bone white) and available in transparent and custom colors. It is commonly used in sterilization trays, dental and surgical instrument handles, and in fluid handling coupling and fitting applications. It is suitable for use in electronic assembly equipment and devices that must withstand solder temperatures. Radel has a heat deflection temperature of 405°F (207°C).

Applications:
  • Medical Wands: - Radel rod is intricately machined into smooth, comfortable handles used as structural components in medical applications. These handles offer superior impact resistance and autoclavability. (Prior material: Stainless Steel)
  • Endoscopic Probe Positioning Ferrule - For endoscopic surgical devices, a positioning ferrule on the instrument handle is intricately machined from Radel R rod. (Prior material: Stainless Steel)
  • Biocompatible Medical Applications, such as insulin pens, blood glucometers, tubing, sterilization trays, and cauterization devices.
  • End caps and other small components for filtering equipment used in the pharmaceutical, electronics and food industries. (Prior materials: Stainless steel, Ultem* PEI)

    Engineering Notes: Although Radel R has been approved for use in a variety of medical devices, it is not USDA compliant and so it is not appropriate for food contact applications.
  • Radel is not a wear material, and its properties degrade when exposed to sunlight.
