Techtron HPV PPS | Plastic Stockist
Plastic Stockist provides a fantastic selection of Techtron HPV PPS
. This plastic is a reinforced, internally lubricated
semi-crystalline polymer which was developed to close the gap both in
performance and price between the standard thermoplastic materials (e.g. PA,
POM, PET) and the high end advanced engineering plastics (e.g. PBI, PI,
Techtron HPV PPS demonstrates an excellent combination of
properties including wear resistance, load-bearing capabilities and
dimensional stability when exposed to chemicals and high temperature
environments. Thanks to the uniformly dispersed internal lubricant, it
exhibits excellent wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction.
Techtron HPV PPS can be used in all kinds of industrial equipment such as
industrial drying and food processing ovens (bearing, roller etc), chemical
process equipment (pump, valve & compressor components) and electrical
Common uses for Techtron HPV PPS
A manufacturer of food processing equipment needed a material that could
withstand aggressive wash down cycles and perform without lubrication. The
solution was to use Techtron HPV PPS as a bearing in this
new unit that offered a more compact, less complicated design that was
capable of higher speed and greater output.
A packager needed a mould to form the paper box in its equipment for
liquids. Techtron HPV PPS was chosen for the paper box
packaging mould due to its better wear resistance over PEEK or aluminium.
The plastic has excellent dimensional stability under load, with no
moisture pickup and a low coefficient of linear thermal expansion. The
benefits include reduced maintenance costs, no corrosion problems, low
weight and in-use noise level, increased hygiene.
