A continuous service temperature (UL746B method) of up to 260°C
(500°F) with excellent electrical and mechanical properties retained.
HDT of up to 315°C for reinforced grades
Exceptionally high strength properties combined with good toughness
over a wide range of temperatures.
Insoluble in most common solvents and being semi-crystalline has
excellent resistance to a very wide range of organic and inorganic
liquids, at elevated temperatures.
Excellent friction and wear properties over a wide range of pressure,
velocity, temperature and counterfacial roughness.
Inherently pure with exceptionally low levels of ionic extractables
and excellent outgassing characteristics.
Resistance to gamma radiation at high dose levels is exceptional
UL V-O flammability rating down to 1.45 mm (0.057) without the
use of additives.
and Toxic Gas Emission
The composition and inherent purity of the materials results in
extremely low smoke and toxic gas emission in fire situations.
Can be used for thousands of hours at elevated temperatures in
excess of 250°C (482°F) in steam or high pressure water environments
without significant degradation in properties.
Remains stable over a wide range of temperatures and frequencies.
Easily processed using a wide range of conventional thermoplastic
