Applications

PPS resin is a good substitute for aluminum. It’s commonly used in interior and exterior automotive plastic molding applications. Other common applications are:

  • Appliance Housings
  • White Goods
  • Automotive (interior & exterior)
Advantages PPS offers a number of beneficial characteristics, including resistance to chemicals such as acids, alkalis, bleaches. Other advantages of this engineering resin are:

  • Excellent Processing
  • Good Surface Finish
  • Low Creep
  • Good Dimensional Stability
  • High Impact Strength
  • Chemical Resistant
Disadvantages
  • High Process Temperatures
  • Comparatively High Cost
  • Fiber-Filled Grades may show Mold Warpage
