INTRODUCTION TO PPS
PPS, or also polyphenylene sulfide, is a thermoplastic polymer synthesized by condensation of p-dichlorobenzene and sulfide sodium sulfide.
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.
