Posted on: 04-9-2013
Emco Plastics, one of the leading distributors in North America, now stocks Ultem®. Ultem® offers outstanding elevated thermal resistance, high strength and stiffness, and broad chemical resistance. Ultem® is used in medical and chemical applications due to its heat resistance. Ultem® is available in five grades.Ultem® 1000 is a thermoplastic polyetherimide high heat polymer designed for injection molding processing. Ultem® 1000 has exceptional flame resistance with a limiting oxygen index and low NBS smoke evolution; it is ideally suited for interior components in aircraft, bus, medical, steam auto clave resistance, and other vehicles where such properties are required.Ultem® 2100 is a polyetherimide is an amber (10%) glass filled high performance polymer which combines high strength and rigidty at elevated temperatures with long term heat resistance. Ultem® 2200 is a polyetherimide is an amber (20%) glass filled high performance polymer which offers excellent dimensional stability combined with broad chemical resistance.
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. Ultem® 2300 commonly is machined into parts for reusable medical devices, analytical instrumentation, electrical/electronic insulators and a variety of structural components requiring high strength and rigidity at elevated temperatures. Ultem® 2400 is a polyetherimide is an amber (40%) glass filled high performance polymer which excels in medical reusable applications requiring repeated sterilization and is available in FDA compliant colors.
