High Temperature Thermoplastics

High temperature thermoplastics have melting points between 625° F and 725° F. They are known to retain their physical properties at higher temperatures and can exhibit thermal stability in the long run. These materials have higher heat deflection and glass transition temperatures so compression molding these materials must be done on specialized equipment that can get the heated material into the mold in the press before it cools which will allow proper forming and cooling of the part in the mold. Examples of high temperature thermoplastics include Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) and Polyether Imide (PEI).
