Ryton®, a brand name of PPS (polyphenylene sulfide), offers the broadest resistance to chemicals of any advanced engineering plastic. This material has no known solvents below 392°F and is inert to steam, strong bases, fuels, and acids. Ryton® is ideal for precise tolerance machined components because of its minimal moisture absorption and very low coefficient of linear thermal expansion.
Notable Material Features
- Minimal moisture absorption
- Very low coefficient of linear thermal expansion
Grades of Ryton®
Ryton® 40% Glass Reinforced PPS
Ryton®, a glass-filled PPS, is the most recognized filled grade of PPS. It has better dimensional stability and thermal performance than unfilled Techtron® PPS, and it maintains its strength to above 425°F.
Ryton® Bearing Grade PPS
Ryton®, a bearing grade PPS, is internally lubricated and carbon-fiber filled. It offers a low coefficient of thermal expansion and uncompromised chemical resistance.
Some of the Ryton® parts we machine are:
- Back-up Rings
- Medical Parts
- Semiconductor Parts
- Valve Seats
- Wear Pads
