  • Features

Ensinger has over twenty different grades of TECATRON PPS available. Custom formulations can be blended to suit your application. Compression molding is amenable to short run production and yields products which are homogenous with exceedingly low process stress. Physical properties will be based on the compound recipe. Tested lot material available, please check with the Ensinger sales team for information.

Compound No.


TECATRON PPS is a highly crystalline high-temperature thermoplastic with an excellent balance of cost, temperature resistance, strength, chemical resistance and flame retardance. TECATRON PPS is often used when long-term high-temperature performance and dimensional stability are a must, even in the presence of aggressive chemicals. In most applications, TECATRON PPS is supplied as a filled compound with glass fiber, carbon fiber or mineral reinforcements.

  • Excellent high temperature resistance
    • Some PPS compounds can operate continuously to 450°F.
