The advantages of polyphenylsulfone
are its high heat resistance and strength, according to Sheku Kamara, operations manager of the Rapid Prototyping Center at the Milwaukee School of Engineering, which was a beta test site for the material.
The flowmeters are constructed with a chemically-resistant molded polyphenylsulfone
body and high density polypropylene connectors for exceptional durability and long life over a wide range of applications.
His firm uses it to make PLA prototypes of surgical devices, which are machined from Radel polyphenylsulfone
(PPSU) from Solvay Specialty Polymers, Alpharetta, Ga.
Solvay is developing other specialty polymers for AM in Alpharetta, including AvaSpire polyaryletherketone (PAEK), KetaSpire polyetheretherketone (PEEK), and Radel polyphenylsulfone
(PPSU) for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), and polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) compatible with SLS.
These include polyphenylsulfone
(PPSU), polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and polyaryletherketone (PAEK).
Veradel HC A-301 PESU complements Solvay's portfolio of transparent, sulfone-based polymers, including Radel polyphenylsulfone
(PPSU) and Udel polysulfone (PSU), which have long been used in advanced healthcare applications.
02" monofilaments, and Radel polyphenylsulfone
resin was used to make 0.
2 and enabling the prediction of pressure effect on viscosity, is adapted for the determination of the pressure-viscosity coefficient of polyphenylsulfone
SABIC's Ultem* resin surpassed not only stainless steel but also polyphenylsulfone
(PPSU) and polysulfone (PSU).
Current research trends include work on self-reinforced polyphenylene (SRP; which is more like bone in stiffness), new sources for polyphenylsulfone
(PPSU), antimicrobial additives, sterilizable versions of less expensive resins, cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) resins with optical properties compatable with PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate, acrylic resin) and higher heat resistances compared to polycarbonate, thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), sustainability performance, PVC replacement alternatives, metal injection molding and new polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymers and PPSU/PEEK blends.
FDM builds production and prototype parts from high-performance engineering thermoplastics such as ABS, polycarbonate, PC-ABS, medical grade Class VI polycarbonate (PC-ISO) and polyphenylsulfone
The goal of this research was to determine optimum film formation conditions for blends of polyphenylsulfone
and polyphenylene and to evaluate their miscibility via optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) techniques.
