Ultem 2300 Glass-Reinforced Polyetherimide (PEI)
Data Sheets for Download:
Modern Plastics is an Ensinger Premier distributor and services customer around the world. One great product from them is the Ultem 2300 line, which are extruded stock shapes using Sabic’s Ultem family of PEI resins. Formed into stock shapes by Ensinger during their state-of-the-art extrusion process, the Ultem 2300 series is reinforced with 30 percent glass fibers to add to the already-impressive strength and heat resistance of unfilled Ultem 1000 products.
The final product is often referred to by Ensinger as TECAPEI to refer to its thermoplastic and PEI chemical components.
Renowned Strength and Stability
Ultem 2300 products exceed the capabilities of the Ultem 1000 series of products. They have additional tensile strength and heat resistance up to 340°F (171°C) as a result of the additional reinforcement of glass fibers. In solid form, it can also be easily machined, milled, stamped, painted and metallized using any standard metalworking equipment.
The extremely high rigidity, tensile strength and heat resistance of Ultem 2300 products are further enhanced by their resistance to hydrolysis and acidic solutions. These properties make Ultem 2300 products ideal for high-stress applications in analytical instrumentation and alongside other electrical insulators. Ultem 2300 can also provide structural support in industrial machinery because of its high strength and rigidity.
Another extremely common application of Ultem 2300 products is for medical instruments that require repeated sterilization. Even under thousands of treatments in a 270°F steam autoclave, Ultem 2300 products retain their tensile strength.
