Boltaron® 4320

New Technology Plastics is a distributor for Boltaron® 4320 materials. This ultra-high impact strength and low shrinkage make it ideal for orthotics and prosthetics applications and other uses requiring durability and dimensional stability in forming and in use.

PPSU plastic is an amorphous material, which has a high glass transition temperature and low moisture absorption. Furthermore, PPSU material has better impact strength and chemical resistance than PSU and PES from the Polysulfone group. Apart from these characteristics, PPSU polymer can withstand sterilization with superheated steam better than other members of this group of polymers and is resistant to detergents and disinfectants.
