Hydrolysis Resistant

Plastics that operate in hot water and steam environments

Many plastics will quickly hydrolyze (degrade in hot water and steam). However, there are a number of plastic materials including PSUUltem®, and PEEK that resist hydrolysis and perform well in hot water and steam environments. This makes them excellent choices for many medical and food processing applications where the ability to withstand repeated exposure to steam is required.

Applications for hydrolysis resistant plastics include medical instrument handles and food storage trays.
