tool tip

High Temperature Performance

Select a performance level based on the expected heat exposure — a wide range of products and grades help allow for optimum matching.

N/A Low High
tool tip

Flexibility (Mechanical)

Choose the degree of performance you need. Highly flexible thermoplastics can maintain their ability to bend, stretch and twist in low temperatures.

N/A Low High
tool tip

Stiffness (Mechanical)

Choose the degree of performance you need. Polymers with high grades of stiffness can maintain their strength and rigidity when exposed to high temperatures and pressure.

N/A Low High
tool tip

Low Wear Low Friction

Select a wear protection grade based on the coefficient of friction for your application, measured in μ

N/A Good Excellent
tool tip

Hydrolysis Resistance

Select a level based on the required resistance for your application. Thermoplastics should exhibit some to very little physical change when exposed to moisture, even at high temperatures, depending on the level chosen.

N/A Good Excellent
tool tip

Performance With Moisture Absorption

Select a level based on the expected moisture exposure and performance required for your application. Thermoplastics should exhibit some to very little physical change, depending on the level chosen.

N/A Good Excellent
tool tip

Hydrocarbon Resistance

Select resistance based on the expected hydrocarbon exposure and durability needs. “Excellent” thermoplastics will exhibit little to no physical change after exposure.

N/A Good Excellent
tool tip

Comparative Tracking Resistance - CTI Electrical

Select a resistance level based on the required tracking index for your application, measured in volts.

N/A Good Excellent
tool tip

Renewably Sourced

Select whether or not your application requires renewably sourced materials. Materials are considered renewably sourced when they contain 20% or more plant-sourced ingredients, verified by 14 C dating.

tool tip

Conductivity (Electrical)

Select conductivity if your application requires surface resistance.
