High performance plastics

What is a high-performance plastic?

The term high performance plastic is not yet fully defined. For this the terms high temperature plastic or high-tech plastics are commonly used. Thermoplastics are divided on the basis of heat resistance or the use temperature in 3 groups:

Not only the high heat resistance or long term service temperature of a high temperature plastic is characterized for a high performance plastic. Our high performance plastics achieve their high performance by combining features at an exceptional property profile. They cover a wide range of applications and increasingly substituting traditional materials such as metals and ceramics.
