B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply distributor of PPSU rod, sheet and plate.
PPSU is a Polyphenylensulfone with superior impact strength and hydrolysis resistance when compared to PSU. This high performance industrial plastic also exhibit excellent notched impact strength even at elevated temperatures.
Also known as Radel® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) delivers the highest performance of sulfone polymers, offering better impact resistance and chemical resistance than polysulfone (PSU) and polyetherimide (PEI). The high heat resistance and excellent hydrolytic stability of Radel® PPSU make it an excellent choice for hot water fittings and medical devices requiring repeated steam sterilization. Radel® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) can withstand continuous exposure to moisture and high temperatures and still absorb tremendous impact without cracking or breaking.
