In current times, new technology always poses new requirements for the materials to be used. Whilst high-performance polymers still were a speciality a few years ago, they have long since become established in the constructors’ standard repertoire. STASSKOL has concentrated on particularly high performance materials. Here, we can name some examples such as polyaryletherketones like PEEK, PEK and PEKEKK, PTFE as well as modified PTFE and also polyimides, polyamid-imide and polyphenylene sulphide which are characterised by a constant use temperature in excess of 150 °C.
Permanent temperature resistance
300 °C (briefly up to 400 °C)
Good cryogenic properties
down to -270 °C
Excellent thermal and
High heat resistance up to
470 °C (HDT/A)
Good chemical resistance to acids,
fats and solvents
What specific requirements does your application demand of the polymers parts used? Where do standard polymers fail and where has the ideal material not yet been found?
