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.

Our Ultra Performance structural compounds are based on carbon fiber reinforced PEEK, PPA, PPS, and PEI resin systems to create the highest performing thermoplastics portfolio available. These high temperature polymers combine excellent chemical resistance with very high strength and stiffness makes them the premier choice for energy exploration, industrial fluid handling, and other applications that experience extreme temperature and chemical environments.

Manufactured using advanced compounding techniques that maximize fiber integrity; Ultra Performance Structural Compounds from RTP Company achieve industry leading strength and stiffness properties.  Combining the higher mechanical properties and lower densities of carbon fiber with the excellent thermal and chemical resistance provided by using high temperature resin systems allows these injection moldable thermoplastic materials to close the performance gap between plastics and metals.

By leveraging synergistic wear additive technologies combined with high temperature, and chemically resistant, PEEK, PPA, and PPS resins, our  Ultra Wear products are exciting OEMs with a new class of materials they can deploy.

Comprehensive side-by-side testing against incumbent thermoset materials at PVs up to 100,000 and temperatures up to 400°F (205°C) has proven Ultra Wear compounds provide industry leading wear and low friction performance.

Our Product Development Engineers have access to nearly all thermoplastic and additive technologies; when combined with the expertise to apply them successfully, the result is a custom formulation that meets your cost and performance expectations. To learn more, contact your local sales engineer!
