Ultem® – PEI

Polyetherimide or PEI material is an amorphous thermoplastic with high mechanical strength and rigidity. PEI polymer is available from New Technology Plastics in sheet and rod shapes using Sabic’s Ultem® resin. Unfilled PEI thermoplastic is translucent and amber in color with exceptional mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties. In filled grades, the addition of glass fiber reinforcement.

PPEI Ultem® plastic has similar characteristics to the Polyetherimides, while simultaneously offering significant advantages. Polyetherimides has a remarkably high creep resistance over a wide temperature and a high permanent operating temperature. Furthermore, very good resistance to hydrolysis, along with dimensional stability rounds out the portfolio of polyetherimide properties.
