Polyetherimide (PEI) – Plastic injection molding
Polyetherimide (PEI) is valuable in the medical, electronics and other fields that demand exceptional strength and rigidity in high-heat applications. The amber, high performance polymer offers excellent dimensional stability, combined with broad chemical resistance.
PEI is ideal for hot air and water environments and is very hydrolitaclly stable with excellent property retention.
With high-performance electrical properties and resistant to heat for long periods, the polyetherimide we mold is used for several industries:
- Medical devices
- Instrument trays
- Electrical/electronics enclosures
- Industrial parts
A frequent substitute for metal, polyetherimide offers several benefits:
- High-impact strength
- Creep and radiation resistance
- Can be reinforced with glass fiber
- Steam autoclavalble
- UV and gamma radiation sterilizable
- FDA compliant
- Available in unfilled and glass filled grades
