ZELLAMID® 1000 (Polyetherimide) amber colour
PEI is a high strength amorphous thermoplasticpolymer and performs in continuous use up to 170°C paired with an excellent flame resistance (UL 94 V-0) and low smoke generation.
ZELLAMID® 1000 is ideal for high strength plus high heat applications and those requiring excellent electrical insulating properties which are stable over wide ranges of temperature and frequency. It is hydrolysis resistant, highly resistant to a broad range of chemicals though chemical resistance is strongly dependent on stress.
ZELLAMID® 1000 is capable of withstanding repeated autoclaving cycles. PEI is also resistant to gamma radiation. It excels in medical reusable applications requiring repeated sterilization.
The glass reinforcement ZELLAMID® 1000 GF20CRF yields a product with an exceptional strength-toweight ratio and increased tensile strength with even greater rigidity and dimensional stability and low creep.
Good impact resistance, although chemical attack under stress might lead to cracking.
