Techtron HPV PPS is a reinforced, internally lubricated
semi-crystalline polymer developed to close the gap both in performance and
price between the standard thermoplastic materials (e.g. PA, POM, PET)
and the high-end advanced engineering plastics (e.g. PBI, PI, PAI, PEEK).
Techtron HPV PPS demonstrates a valuable combination of properties including wear resistance, load-bearing capabilities and dimensional stability, when exposed to chemicals and high temperature environments.

Techtron HPV PPS finds its applications where PA, POM, PET, PEI and PSU fall short or where PI, PEEK and PAI are over engineered and a more economical solution must be found.
Thanks to the uniformly dispersed internal lubricant, it exhibits excellent wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction. It overcomes the disadvantages of virgin PPS caused by a high coefficient of friction, and of glass fibre reinforced PPS which can cause premature wear of the counterface in moving-part applications.
The material can be used in all kinds of industrial equipment such as industrial drying and food processing ovens (bearing, roller etc), chemical process equipment (pump, valve & compressor components) and electrical insulating systems.
Techtron HPV PPS Proven Applications
Components used in high pressure liquid chromatography are fabricated from Techtron PPS stock shapes due to its biocompatibility and chemical resistance. (Prior-materials : PEEK, Stainless Steel, Titanium)
Socket assemblies extensively machined from Techtron PPS plate are used during high power/high speed testing of semiconductor packages. (Prior materials: Vespel* PI)
Rings made of Bearing-grade Quadrant PPS eliminate galling and corrosion problems in centrifugal mining pumps, and allow closer running clearances - reducing recirculation and increasing efficiency. (Prior material: Bronze)
Precision machined, 40% Glass-reinforced Quadrant PPS components allow high efficiency in a broad range of chemical pump environments. (Prior material: Stainless Steel)
From 100°C onwards (above the glass transition temperature), the mechanical properties of Techtron HPV PPS drops off significantly and the coefficient of linear thermal expansion increases considerably. Ketron® PEEK and Torlon® PAI may be suitable alternatives to overcome these inconveniences.
