High Heat Materials
High temperature plastics bring the superior properties of polymers to bear, even at high permanent operating temperatures. Heat resistant plastics are a light, versatile alternative to metal, ceramics and older-generation polymers. High performance plastics meet higher requirements than standard and engineering plastics because of their better mechanical properties, higher chemical and/or higher heat stability.
