High-temperature polymers are the type of polymer that is used in applications with high temperatures (above 150°C) requirements. They are also known as the ‘commodity’ plastics. They are generally categorized as specialty plastics due to their limited use and high cost. They are dimensionally more stable and possess various excellent mechanical properties. They are usually composed of fragrant & heterocyclic moieties linked by flexible bridging groups. This general composition of the material greatly affects the stiffness as well as the thermal constancy of the overall product manufactured. Polytetrafluorethylene, polyamides, Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS), Liquid-crystal polymer (LCP) are the generally used polymers in the manufacturing of coatings, films and injection-molded parts. They are also used in several applications such as connectors, PCBs, insulation, relays, bobbins, switches, sockets, and others.
Some of the essential characteristics are included high mechanical performance, excellent tensile and compressive strength, superior temperature adaptability, transparency in many microwave applications, outstanding chemical resistance, superior bearing & wear properties and radiation resistance. Apart from this, few of the limitations are included high manufacturing cost, specified operating processes for instance annealing operations at specified temperatures, a high-temperature requirement in the processing and sensitivity to alkali or acid attacks.
