Techtron® PPS Description
Techtron® PPS (polyphenylene sulfide), manufactured by Quadrant Plastics, offers the broadest resistance to chemicals of any advanced engineering plastic. It has no known solvents below 392°F and is inert to acids, fuels, steam, and strong bases. PPS is ideal for precise tolerance machined components because of its minimal moisture absorption and very low coefficient of linear thermal expansion.
Unfilled Techtron® is easily machined to close tolerances, and it can be used for structural applications in corrosive environments and as a lower temperature replacement for PEEK. Standard Techtron® is off-white in color, but it is also available in black as a compression molded version.
