Polysulphone - Psul 10% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Better tensile strength, flexural modulus, creep resistance, heat distortion temperature and mould shrinkage compared with unmodified polysulphone.

Disadvantages

Significant reduction in elongation at break and reduced notched izod impact strength compared with unmodified polysulphone. Inclusion of glass can cause anisotropy in mouldings.
