polyetherimide

Download Datasheet (pdf 20kb)

Medical grade Tempalux® is made from Ultem® polyetherimide resin, an amorphous thermoplastic which exhibits excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and disinfectants. Ultem® maintains its size and shape over a broad temperature range as well as tolerates a high amount of stress over extended periods of time. Recommended sterilization techniques for Tempalux include EtO gas, radiation, steam autoclaving, dry heat and cold sterilization.

The following physical property information is based on typical values of the base polyetherimide (PEI) resin.

Tempalux®

Applications Include:
Provisional trials
Instrument handles
Medical device components

Advantages of Tempalux®
Lot controlled and traceable
