Solvay Specialty Polymers Radel® R-5600 Polyphenylsulfone (PPSU), Transparent
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polyphenylsulfone (PPSU)

Material Notes: Transparent, very high flow for injection molding

Radel® R-5600 is a very high melt flow grade of Radel® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU). It is especially well-suited for parts requiring long flow length with thin walls. Radel® resins offer exceptional hydrolytic stability and toughness superior to other commercially-available, high-temperature engineering resins. They also offer high deflection temperatures and outstanding resistance to environmental stress cracking. Radel® polymers are inherently flame retardant, provide excellent thermal stability and possess good electrical properties.

Additional Radel® grades include a transparent injection molding grade (R-5000), an opaque, general purpose, injection molding grade (R-5100) and a transparent, extrusion grade (R-5500).

- Natural/Transparent: Radel® R-5600 NT
- Additional Made-to-Order Colors Available

Applications: Aerospace Applications; Aircraft Applications; Food Service Applications

Features: Acid Resistant; Base Resistant; Chemical Resistant; Flame Retardant; Good Thermal Stability; High ESCR (Stress Crack Resist.); High Heat Resistance; Hydrolytically Stable; Steam Sterilizable; Ultra High Toughness
