Polyetherimide is a high strength amorphous thermoplastic polymer that is part of the polyimide family. PEI stands out in particular because of its low flammability (UL94: V-0) and shows at the same time a low smoke development. PEI has a continuous service temperature of up to 170 ° C.
PEI Color Compounds are made from Polyetherimide ULTEM granules.
- High strength
- Low flammability
- Low smoke development
Due to its first-class electrical insulation values, which are stable over a wide temperature and frequency range, this PEI color compounds are particularly suitable for use in the electronics industry. PEI components are also resistant to many chemicals and to hydrolysis. However, this also depends on the state of tension.
Additionally, PEI can be processed into semi-finished products or injection molded.
