PPSU

High temperature thermoplastic material with outstanding impact resistance that is autoclavable

About PPSU

two stacked sheets of PPSU in blackPPSU (polyphenylsulfone) (Radel® R) is a high temperature thermoplastic material with outstanding impact resistance. Radel® R is resistant to hot water and steam and can withstand repeated cycles in a steam autoclave. FDA compliant grades of PPSU are available. For PPSU chemical resistance view our chart.

Length, width, thickness, and diameter tolerances vary by size, by manufacturer, brand, and grade. Custom sizes available upon request.

PPSU Properties and Material Options

Radel® R-5500– is a general purpose extrusion grade of polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) offering exceptional hydrolytic stability and better toughness than most commercially available high temperature polymers.

Tech Tip– PPSU is often used instead of polysulfone or Ultem® for medical applications when superior toughness or extended service life with repeated autoclave cycles is desired.
