Goodfellow, a leading supplier of polymers, metals and other materials for research and industry, offers a wide selection of polymer films, including specialist products suitable for demanding applications.

Among these special polymer films are:

Polyphenylenesulphide (PPS) in thicknesses from 0.1mm to 0.4mm

Characteristics: Outstanding resistance to heat and sunlight, extreme inertness toward organic solvents and inorganic salts and bases, flame retardant, good strength with use of reinforcement, good wear resistance, good dimensional stability, electrically and thermally insulating

Industries where PPS is typically used: Automotive, electrical/electronic, medical/healthcare, textile, engineering parts, household appliance

Polyetherimide (PEI)* in thicknesses from 0.025mm to 0.50mm

Characteristics: High tensile strength without the use of reinforcement, excellent electrical properties that remain stable over a wide range of temperatures and frequencies, excellent heat resistance, good chemical resistance, good creep resistance and dimensional stability, good resistance to UV and gamma radiation  

Industries where PEI is typically used: Automotive, electrical/electronic, medical/healthcare, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, household goods (food contact acceptable)

*Brand name Ultem (SABIC)

Polyetherketone (PEK) in thicknesses from 0.040mm to 0.100mm

Characteristics: Excellent heat and chemical resistance, good resistance to burning, high strength and toughness, good dimensional stability

Industries where PEK is typically used: Medical/healthcare, automotive, aerospace, textile, engineering parts

In addition to film, Goodfellow can supply many polymers as rods, sheets, tubes, granules, fabric, fibre, monofilament, honeycomb and fasteners (nuts, bolts, washers).
