Ultem® Machined Parts

Ultem® Machined Parts

Meets ASTM D 5205.

Ultem® is a family of Polyetherimide (PEI) products manufactured by SABIC, and can be further classified as an amorphous thermoplastic. Ultem® resins are used in medical and chemical instrumentation due to their heat resistance, solvent resistance and flame resistance. Ultem has high mechanical properties and performs in continuous use to 340°F (170°C).

Ultem® is a semi-transparent high strength plastic material that can operate in high service temperature environments. Ultem® is resistant to hot water and steam and can withstand repeated cycles in a steam autoclave. Ultem® has outstanding electrical properties, with one of the highest dielectric strengths of any thermoplastic material. Ultem® is often used instead of polysulfone when superior strength, stiffness, or temperature resistance is required.
