can withstand over 1,000 autoclave cycles without significant loss of properties.
Medical & healthcare sector currently is the largest consumer for sulfone polymers or polyarylsulfones, such as PSU and PPSU
and further contributes to the growth of these polymers.
Segmentation by type and analysis of - PSU, PEI, PESU, PPSU
com), is supplying its Paryls brand of PSU and PPSU
and expects to commercialize polyethersulfone (PES) before year's end.
is ideal for applications that require repeated sterilizations and high mechanical strength.
With the advent of more expensive materials such as PEI [polyetherimide] (Ultem) and PPSU
[polyphenylsulfone] (Radel), resistance to repeated autoclaving was increased significantly, albeit with a significant increase in material cost as well," Carbone explained.
Ultem resin outperformed PPSU
in its ability to withstand several types of sterilization processes, including autoclaving.
Dimensionally stable plastics include PC, PEI, PES, PSU, and PPSU
bonds to PC, PBT, PPO PEEK and PPSU
Here values of f for PMMA, PPSU
, and PVDF are from sliding wear under a 5 N applied load (based on the fact that f is independent of load within the range tested (11)).
Stratasys materials previously compatible with the 900mc are ABS-M30, PC, and PPSF / PPSU
Meanwhile, Solvay just announced that its closed-cell TegraCore PPSU
foam has obtained qualification from Airbus SAS for use in applications ranging from ducting to sandwich-panel components requiring excellent resistance to fire, impact, and chemicals.
