High-performance plastics differ from technical thermoplastics by higher temperature resistance, better chemical resistance and better mechanical properties. The temperature resistance is permanently above 150 ° C. They are therefore often referred to as high-temperature plastics. Polyetherimide (PEI) and polyamideimide (PAI) can achieve temperature stability up to 260 ° C.
An example of high-performance plastics is the polyphenylene sulfide.
The part shown here is a hot air distributor made of polyphenylene sulfide with a reinforcement of 35% glass fiber (PPS GF35)
