PPSU (Polyphenylsulfone)

QUADRANT PPSU, RADEL, RADEL R 5500, SUSTASON PPSU, TECASON P, ULTRASON

Description

PPSU (Polyphenylsulfone) is an amorphous high performance thermoplastic made from RADEL R Resin.

Offering improved impact and chemical resistance over Polysulfone (UDEL) and Polytherimide (ULTEM), this material has also been tested for notched izod impact resistance as high as 13 ft.-lbs/in.

The impact resistance, coupled with a heat deflection temperature of 405°F (207°C) and virtually unlimited steam auto clave resistance, make RADEL R PPSU the material of choice for many reusable medical components.

RADEL R PPSU is FDA and NSF-compliant under standards 51 and 61.
