It is a semi-crystalline polymer
developed for technical applications and suitable for mechanical parts which
need dimensional stability and low coefficient of friction. Operating
temperatures ranging from -20 to 100°c.
Low friction coefficient
High dimensional stability
at temperatures as well as humidity
Compressive strength even
at low temperatures
High toughness and surface
Good electrical insulating
Easy to varnish and polish
Sensitive to hydrolysis
No high shock resistance as
a consequence of its rigidity. It is possible to modify with other polymers but
this may change its properties, e.g.
stiffness, compressive and flexural strength
Mechanical: Due to low
coefficient of friction, it’s particularly suitable for sliding blocks, slide
ways, bearings, guides, etc.
High dimensional stability make
it an excellent option for precision parts that need tight tolerance in moist
and hot conditions.
electrical features (long term stability) are suitable for insulation and other
Good acid and chlorine solution resistance
Food contact: Widely used
in thefood industry due to physiologically inert properties.
