Polysullfone

Polysulfone’s (PSU) belong to the group of Polysulfone’s and are thermoplastic, transparent plastics. New Technology Plastics distributes these materials in sheet, rod, and tube. Due to their amorphous molecular structure, Polysulfone’s are translucent and have a light brown tint. Polysulfone (PSU) is a high temperature plastic with high mechanical strength and rigidity. Apart from the high continuous use temperature, the outstanding characteristics of the material include good creep strength that is remarkably high over a wide range of temperatures, excellent dimensional stability, very good resistance to hydrolysis and good chemical compatibility.

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.
