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.
If you are looking for a high strength plastic that can serve at high temperatures and has outstanding electrical properties, PEI plastic is the right tool for the job. Our expert team can machine and fabricate your high-quality PEI plastic parts quickly and precisely. Call us today at (610) 926-3245 or fill out our contact form to discuss your next project.

When it comes to achieving cosmetic standards for plastic parts, CNC machining provides the most consistent, high-quality finishes and tight tolerances. Injection molding and additive machining (3D printing) are prone to certain cosmetic defects that can mar the appearance, fit, and function of plastic parts. Secondary CNC machining, however, can remove these defects and bring […]Read More »
