Ultem

Ultem® PolyEtherImide is a high performance amber to transparent thermoplastic. It has a high deflection temperature and high strength and rigidity even at high temperature. Due to its outstanding resistance to heat, solvents, and flame, it is commonly used in medical and chemical instrumentation. It is inherently flame resistant and shows extremely low NBS smoke generation.

Ultem has high dielectric strength and maintains its good mechanical properties even in continuous use to 3400F/1700C. It can withstand repeated exposure to boiling water and sterilization.
