Component must be machined with low to no stress. Part requirements dictate a final stress test for lot acceptability.
Polysulfone is very susceptible to stress cracking over time. Annealing cycle after machining removes material and machining stress. Components pass final stress test 100% of the time.

This high-performance thermoplastic resin is noted for its ability to resist deformation under load in a broad range of temperature and environmental conditions. It can be effectively sanitized with standard sterilization techniques and cleaning agents, remaining tough and durable in water, steam and chemically harsh environments. This stability makes polysulfone ideal for applications in the medical, pharmaceutical and food processing industries.
Easily machined and fabricated, polysulfone is a cost-effective alternative to glass, eliminating the potential for breakage in applications such as sight glasses and sensors.
