Overview of PPS

PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) is a crystalline, high-performance plastic used extensively in engineering. It consists of a benzene ring from the Phenyl group (PP), alternating repeatedly with a sulfur molecule (S).

Enjoying excellent heat resistance, it can be used for quite a long time in high temperatures. With excellent chemical-resistance up to 200℃, it will not dissolve in oil, fat, or other solvent.

Other strengths include flame-retardancy and tensile-strength. Plus, there is high dimensional stability and low amounts of shrinkage at the time of molding,

However, the qualities also result in some weaknesses: less toughness (weak under impact) and poor weather-resistance. At the time of molding, the Barie amount will be prominently noted.

※ Weather-resistance refers to a property of plastics, paints, etc. that prevents or reduces deformation, discoloration, et al. when used outdoors.
