The Ultem® family of amorphous thermoplastic polyetherimide (PEI) offers outstanding elevated thermal resistance, high strength and stiffness, and broad chemical resistance. Ultem® is used in medical and chemical applications due to their heat resistance, solvent resistance, and flame resistance. Ultem® uniquely balance both mechanical properties and processability, offering design engineers exceptional flexibility and freedom.

Ultem® 1000 is a thermoplastic polyetherimide high heat polymer designed for injection molding process. Ultem® 1000 combines excellent machinability and provides a cost savings benefit over PES, PEEK, and Kapton in high heat applications(continuous use to 340 degrees F).
Ultem® 2300 is an extruded 30% glass reinforced polyetherimide. It is an amorphous, high performance polymer with exceptional flame and heat resistance. It performs continuously to 340 degrees F (171 degrees C), making it ideal for high strength/high heat applications, and those requiring consistent dielectric properties over a wide frequency range.
