We use high temperature resins as a basis for a broad range of thermoplastic compounds because they offer better mechanical performance, wear resistance, and chemical resistance than most other polymers. Although all polymers will lose performance over time at elevated temperatures, high temperature polymers have rigid polymer chains that allow them to operate at higher temperatures. In addition, their strong chemical bonds enable them to maintain better properties at elevated temperatures, thus enabling higher continuous use temperatures.

Starting with high temperature resins as the base, our engineers compound thermoplastic materials that:

  • improve performance at elevated temperatures > 150 °C/300 °F
  • retain physical properties
  • provide better dimensional stability
  • offer excellent electrical characteristics at increased temperature

Our extensive database of high temperature solutions includes commercially available formulations and custom compounds to fit your application requirements.
