Udel® P-1750 MR
Polysulfones have long been known for transparency and clarity, but have been somewhat limited by a slight yellow cast which has been typical of the material. These grades were designed to eliminate the yellow cast and provide improved aesthetics for applications where a yellow cast is undesirable.
In general, Udel® polysulfone is a tough, rigid, high-strength, high-heat thermoplastic that retains its properties at temperatures from -101°C to 149°C (-150°F to 300°F). With a heat deflection temperature at 1.8 MPa (264 psi) of 174°C (345°F) and excellent thermal and oxidative stability, this resin is suitable for sustained use at temperatures up to 149°C (300°F).
Other key properties of polysulfone include resistance to hydrolysis by hot water and resistance to acids and bases. In addition, the resin is resistant to a wide range of cleaners and disinfectants. Polysulfone's resistance to alcohols and aliphatic hydrocarbons is also good; however, the resin is generally not resistant to polar organic or chlorinated solvents.
