Product Description
Radel® R-5100 is an opaque, general purpose polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) for injection molding, that offers exceptional hydrolytic stability, and toughness superior to other commercially-available, high-temperature engineering resins. This resin also offers a high deflection temperature and outstanding resistance to environmental stress cracking. Radel® polymers are inherently flame retardant, provide excellent thermal stability and possess good electrical properties.
