PEI / Ultem®

PEI (Polyethermide) is a semi-transparent amorphous thermoplastic, having high mechanical and rigidity stability as well as a remarkably high creep resistance across a wide temperature range. Offering superb steam and heat resistance and extraordinary dielectric properties. Its continuous service temperature is around 3400F. It is suitable for the applications, requiring high strength and rigidity in elevated temperatures. FDA compliance makes it suitable for applications within the medical and food processing industries
