Product Highlight: PPS

Today we'll take a quick look at an often over-looked plastic, PPS. Due to impressive strength and cost-effectiveness, PPS bridges the gap between partially crystalline materials and PEEK plastic.

Interstate Plastics chooses Quadrant's Techtron® as their PPS material of choice, which is easily machined to close tolerances. It is ideal for structural applications in corrosive environments or as a PEEK replacement at lower temperatures.

40% Glass-Reinforced  PPS is the most recognized PPS grade. It is compression molded and offers better dimensional stability and thermal performance than Techtron® PPS and maintains its strength to above 425°F (220°C).

Bearing-Grade Techtron® PPS is an internally lubricated and carbon fiber reinforced compression molded PPS offering a low coefficient of thermal expansion and uncompromised chemical resistance. It is well suited for and wear applications or when an electrically conductive material is required.

Rings made of Bearing-grade Techtron PPS eliminate galling and corrosion problems in centrifugal mining pumps, and allow closer running clearances -- reducing recirculation and increasing efficiency over materials such as bronze.
