Thanks to the connections of monomers by sulfur atoms, PPS has characteristics of a high performance material, meaning PPS has excellent resistance to heat, acids, alkalies, mildew, abrasion or UV exposure to name a few. Furthermore, PPS has a low moisture absorption, a good dimensional stability and is flame retardant. 


PPS is used in connectors, housings and pump bodies. In terms of textile applications, PPS is applied  in protective clothing.
