Polysulfone

Remains tough under impact, load, high temperatures and sterilization.

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.
