Polyphenylene sulfide is an engineering plastic, commonly used today as a high-performance thermoplastic. PPS can be molded, extruded, or machined to high tolerances. This reinforced, internally lubricated polyphenylene sulphide grade demonstrates an excellent combination of properties including wear resistance, load-bearing capabilities and dimensional stability, when exposed to chemicals and high temperature environments. Techtron® HPV PPS finds its applications where PA, POM, PET, PEI and PSU fall short or where PBI, PI, PEEK and PAI are over-engineered and a more economical solution must be found.
Thanks to the uniformly dispersed internal lubricant, Techtron® HPV PPS exhibits excellent wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction. It overcomes the disadvantages of virgin PPS caused by a high coefficient of friction, and of glass fibre reinforced PPS which can cause premature wear of the counter face in moving-part applications.
