Features

Resistance

​TECATRON PPS offers long-term heat resistance even at continuous temperatures of 200°C​ & excellent resistance to moisture absorption, offering strength even in hot water applications. TECATRON PPS has the second highest rating for chemical resistance to acid, alkalis​ & solvents after fluoropolymers.

​Additives & Modifiers

TECATRON PPS is available in modified grades to change the physical & mechanical properties such as glass filled to increase rigidity & strength, a combination of PTFE, graphite & carbon additives for wear & bearing applications. High purity & modified grades available for the semiconductor industry.

​Applications

Compressor & pump parts, high pressure liquid components, electronic sockets, connectors & fixtures, valves, bushings, nozzles, rollers, surgical instruments, fuel & brake systems, chemical mechanical planarisation​ applications.
