PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) is one of many engineering plastic materials that Stack Plastics uses to produce precision injection molded parts. Considered an exotic resin, PPS offers a wide range of advantages, including:
·High heat resistance
·21,800 psi tensile strength
·UL 90 V-0 flame rating
·Good electrical properties
·Good dimensional stability
This engineering plastic does have a few disadvantages, including brittleness and tendency to warp. It’s important to understand how PPS will react to different environments and circumstances before you decide which resin to use for your application.
2.PPS for Electrical Applications
Because polyphenylene sulfide exhibits excellent flame retardant properties, it is an ideal choice for electrical applications involving high temperatures.
