PPS/Ryton®/Techtron®

Ideal for structural components in chemically harsh, high-temperature environments.

Among the most dimensionally stable thermoplastics on the market, PPS/Ryton/Techtron offer superior performance in both highly corrosive and high temperature environments. With broad resistance to a variety of acids, alkalis, ketones and hydrocarbons, the materials are suitable for a range of high performance structural components across many industries.

PPS/Ryton/Techtron products are inert to steam, compatible with common sterilization methods, and can be machined to tight tolerances.
