PPE GF30

HPMs – High-performance materials

PPE GF30

PPE (polyphenylene ether) GF30 is an amorphous thermoplastic. It is used mainly in applications requiring great precision and good creep resistance, also at high temperatures. It is an electrically insulating material with minimal water absorption. We deliver PPE GF30 as plastic sheets and rods.
