Which Material Should We Choose for High Temperatures?
At Induplast, we manufacture parts for a wide range of industries, as diverse as the automotive, food and industrial sectors. This involves manufacturing parts with specific technical features. In order to manufacture parts that can be exposed to high temperatures, various materials that are capable of withstanding extreme heat conditions can be used.

In today’s post, we will tell you which are the most suitable materials for these types of parts:

Which thermoplastic materials can withstand high temperatures?

  • Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS®): this material remains chemically stable at high temperatures and has very good mechanical strength even at temperatures above 200º. Other qualities of PPS are its excellent electrical properties, high abrasion resistance and chemical resistance. This material is mainly used in: the automotive industry, chemical industry, electronics and mechanical engineering.
  • Polyether ether ketone (PEEK): this material withstands working temperatures up to 300º, with high dimensional stability. Among its qualities, we would like to highlight that it is sterilisable. For this reason, it is widely used in laboratories and the medical sector (parts for surgical instruments and temporary implants, laboratory prostheses...). PEEK is also widely used in catering machinery. For example, for manufacturing iron presses, sterilizing machines, dishwashers and dryers...
  • PTFE (Teflon®): a type of engineering plastic capable of resisting up to 260°C, with very high chemical resistance. Teflon® is a thermal, electrical and acoustic insulator, in addition to being non-stick. These qualities make it an ideal material for manufacturing parts such as autoclaves/cookers, valves, pump components, fittings, hoppers in the following industries: Food, Pharmaceutical and Chemical.

It is important to note that the choice of material will depend on the technical specifications and requirements of the specific use. In addition, mechanical properties, availability, cost and other factors should also be considered when selecting the most suitable material.

At Induplast, we have the necessary expertise for machining parts for all sectors and we have a wide range of machinery that covers most machining processes.
