An Introduction to PEI Plastic

Pei plastic

When it comes to high performance engineering thermoplastics, PEI plastic offers a great balance of mechanical properties and processability that makes it suitable for use in a wide range of applications. With high strength and stability and a glass transition temperature of 420º, PEI plastic is a lower cost alternative to PEEK. Its long term creep resistance also makes it a great replacement for metal and other materials in many structural applications.

Marketed under brand names such as Ultem®, PEI plastic is often used in medical and chemical instrumentation due to its heat, solvent, and flame resistance. It is also used in electrical connectors and insulation parts, chip test sockets, semiconductor equipment components, aerospace parts, fluid handling, and automotive applications.

The Plastic Components of Nuclear Power Plants

Nuclear energy is responsible for 11% of the world’s electricity, and is the second-largest source of low-carbon energy worldwide. The efficiency, operation and safety of these plants is dependent upon the quality of the components they are comprised of, and often it is the smallest components of nuclear power plants that get overlooked. During the […]
