PSU 1000 | Plastic Stockist
Plastic Stockist offers an excellent range of PSU 1000
advanced plastic, which is a translucent (non-optical quality)
amorphous thermoplastic material, offering a combination of
excellent mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. It often replaces
polycarbonate whenever higher temperature resistance, improved chemical
resistance or autoclavability is required.
PSU 1000 is commonly used in food processing equipment (milk machines,
pumps, valves, filtration plates, heat exchangers), for analytical
instrumentation and all kinds of components which are subjected to repeated
cleaning and sterilisation.
Common uses for PSU 1000
PSU 1000 is now commonly used for medical carrier parts
as cleaning aluminium parts were becoming tedious and costly. Parts
fabricated from PSU 1000 easily replaced ineffective aluminium. The PSU 1000
parts were able to be steam cleaned and more easily dealt with laboratory
chemicals and radiation.
PSU 1000 is also used for dialysis equipment as smaller and lighter
equipment is being requested from medical device designers. PSU 1000
replaced the stainless steel parts used on early designs. PSU 1000
is nearly 7 times lighter than stainless steel. PSU 1000 plastic
material easily withstands repeated autoclave cycles.
