Impact Strength, Steam Resistance and Transparency
Radel® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) is an incredibly tough, transparent plastic that can withstand more than 1,000 cycles of steam sterilization without any significant loss of properties. This makes it an excellent choice for cases, trays and other reusable medical devices.
PPSU delivers higher impact strength than polycarbonate (PC) and polyetherimide (PEI) and retains its toughness and strength over time. It also offers superior chemical resistance, making it highly resistant to commonly used cleaners and disinfectants over a broad temperature range.
