High-performance plastics

High-performance plastics include fluoroplastics and engineering plastics that have more advanced properties than standard technical plastics.

Often such plastics are used in applications in which the permanent operating temperature is higher than 150°C, strong chemicals are present or conditions are demanding in various ways. Several high-performance plastics are resistant to temperatures of 200°C and some can even withstand temperatures of up to 400°C.

High-performance plastics include PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene or teflon), PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride), PPE (polyphenylene ether), PMP (polymethylpentene), PSU (polysulphone), PPSU (polyphenylsulphone), PEI (polyetherimide), PES (polyethersulphone), PPS (polyphenylene sulphide), PEEK (polyether ether ketone), PEK (polyetherketone), PEKEKK (polyetherketoneetherketoneketone), PAI (polyamide-imide), PI (polyimide), E-CTFE and FlexGuard rubber graphite.
