PPS – Polyphenylene Sulphide

Polyphenylene Sulphide (PPS)

Material of Choice for Continuous Operating Temperatures up to 220 °C

Linear polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) is a semi-crystalline high-temperature polymer with very high thermal stability, stiffness, strength, creep resistance and excellent chemical resistance. By reinforcing PPS with glass fibres and glass fibre/mineral mixtures, continuous service temperatures of up to 220 °C are possible. This makes the material extremely stable in the presence of conventional and alternative fuels. PPS is inherently flame-retardant and complies with UL 94 V-0 standards, some grades up to 5VA. Together with its very low moisture absorption, this semi-crystalline polymer is ideally suited for demanding technical applications.

Application Examples for PPS

Polyphenylene sulphide is well suited for technical components that have to withstand high continuous service temperatures and a humid-hot environment. Engine cooling and charge air management are typical areas of application in motor vehicles. In electrical/electronic applications, it ensures maximum dimensional stability, even at high temperatures.

The oil and gas industry is an application segment in which PPS offers good chemical resistance.

Our PPS portfolio includes glass fibre and glass fibre/mineral reinforced as well as non-reinforced grades. We offer you PPS with food and drinking water approval as well as blow-moulding grades and flexible grades.
