Supply Services offers high-performance materials including high performance plastics that meet higher requirements than standard plastics. Our premium range of high performance amorphous or semi-crystalline thermoplastics and imidised materials are capable of long-term thermal stability up to 260°C. Some to 300°C with short-term bursts up to 400°C. Our selection includes PTFE Teflon, PEEK, PVDF, PSU, PPSU, PEI, PPS, PBI, PAI, and PI materials from leading international manufacturers. These materials generally offer the highest strength and stiffness, plus water, steam, and chemical resistance. All materials are available in a range of modified grades to suit your specific needs. Browse our range of high-performance plastics below.
PI polyimide plastic is a non-melting & fire-resistant polymer offering excellent retention of mechanical & physical properties at temperatures up to 300°C. Widely used in the glass industry.
TORLON PAI is widely used to replace metal parts where lighter, weight saving parts are required. Up to 270°C continuous service temperature. Outstanding loading capacity, rigidity and strength.
PEEK plastic offers excellent sliding properties & mechanical properties, even when under thermal load. Excellent resistance to chemicals. Universal material for highly stressed parts.
PTFE Teflon® has a continuous service temperature of 260°C. Amazing sliding characteristics, as well as excellent electrical properties. Flame retardant. Fillers available such as glass, carbon, bronze to improve properties.
PPS plastic offers exceptional chemical resistance, excellent mechanical properties & dimensional stability over a range of temperatures. It is flame retardant & a very chemically resistant material at high temperatures.
PPSU plastic has higher impact strength, better chemical resistance than PSU. With low moisture absorption it is suitable for super hot sterilisation & used widely in the medical industry.
PEI plastic offers high heat resistance, mechanical strength & rigidity. Extremely strong and stiff. Can withstand repeated sterilization. Amber in colour & widely used in the medical & chemical industries.
PSU plastic is a high temperature thermoplastic known for high mechanical strength & dimensional stability at high operating temperatures. Good resistance to hydrolysis.
PVDF plastic (polyvinylidene) is a stable fluoropolymer used in applications requiring high purity with outstanding resistance to chemicals & higher mechanical strength.
