Renowned for its exceptional heat resistance, solvent resistance, and flame retardancy, Ultem® 1000 stands as a pinnacle in high-performance thermoplastics. With a relative density of 1500kg/m³, this standard unfilled grade of polyetherimide (PEI) offers high dielectric strength, inherent flame resistance, and minimal smoke generation. Exhibiting robust mechanical properties, Ultem® excels in continuous use at temperatures up to 170°C. Despite its prowess, a current challenge lies in its recyclability, leading to approximately 500kg/year being directed to incineration instead of reintegration into the production system.
