PPS, PEI, PEEK; Polymers With Exceptional Thermal Stability and Other High Performance Properties
Assoc.Prof.Dr. Ali R. Koray
High performance engineering polymers with outstanding thermal, chemical and mechanical properties are increasingly used in various applications of automotive, aerospace, electrical and other industries.
In this seminar 3 major semicrystalline polymers representing this class, namely PPS(Polyphenylenesulfide), PEI(Polyetherimide) and PEEK(Polyetheretherketone) will be introduced and their exceptional thermal stability, continuous service temperatures(between 240- 360ºC), heat deflection behaviour; high dimensional stability, high rigidity, excellent chemical stability and inherently flame retardancy discussed.
Various application examples will help to understand the value propositions of these plastics, their advantages as well as their limitations.
