Houston, TX - Ensinger TECAPEI stock shapes made with Ultem® resin from Sabic Innovative Plastics is a popular choice for applications in the automotive and aircraft industries. TECAPEI retains its strength and resists stress cracking when exposed to automotive and aircraft fluids, says the company. It also resists aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, acids, and weak aqueous solutions. Inherent flame resistance without additives makes TECAPEI exceptionally difficult to ignite, meeting UL94 V-0 specifications. It generates low smoke and creates products of combustion with very low toxicity. The combination of Ultem resins and Ensinger extrusion technology makes TECAPEI a lower stress material with fewer defects, increasing the probability that machined parts will turn out right. TECAPEI has excellent long term heat resistance. Physical and mechanical properties remain stable at elevated temperatures because of a high glass transition temperature over 400°F. The material ranks among the highest amorphous plastics in terms of strength and stiffness. TECAPEI is among the most dimensionally stable thermoplastics available, offering engineers predictability over a wide range of temperatures. Filled grades provide even greater capabilities for maintaining exceptionally high tolerances.
