High Temperature Plastic Compounds
Available from RTP Company
High temperature thermoplastic compounds offer significant retention of physical properties, along with dimensional stability and excellent electrical characteristics, at increased temperatures.
RTP Company develops these compounds to your specifications; each may be modified for flame retardance, wear resistance, conductivity, structural reinforcement, and color. High temperature resins also offer better chemical resistance than most other polymers.
When specifying high temperature compounds, do not rely solely on test data; the data is generated from specific tests that do not directly correlate to end-use part performance. Successful application designs account for the balance of load/temperature/time, allow for creep (strain over time), and include appropriate safety factors.
