Duratron PEI 1000 | Plastic Stockist
Duratron U1000 PEI is an amber translucent (non-optical
quality) amorphous thermoplastics material, offering high strength and heat
resistance. It performs continuously to 170°C, making it ideal for high
strength / high heat applications, and also for applications requiring
consistent dielectric properties over a wide frequency and temperature
Duratron U1000 PEI is extremely suitable for electrical
/ electronic insulators (including many semiconductor process components)
and a variety of structural components requiring high strength and rigidity
at elevated temperatures. Thanks to its good hydrolysis resistance,
Duratron U1000 PEI is capable of withstanding repeated autoclaving cycles.
Common uses for Duratron U1000 PEI
Costly, brittle ceramics were constantly being broken during installation of
microwave communication insulators so durable Duratron U1000 PEI
was easily machined into the parts required. This material has a
drastically greater impact resistance than the original ceramic and shows
excellent dielectric properties.
In ultrasonic scanning equipment, a Duratron U1000 PEI plastic support is
used to hold the piezo crystals and to guide the ultrasonic sound into the
tested material. For the scanning of warm surfaces, standard plastics
grades became too soft and sticky. High temperature resistant
Duratron U1000 PEI withstands these temperatures and is
transparent to ultrasonic waves.
