ULTEM™ 1000

ULTEM™ 1000 Rods, Plates & Tubular Bars

Quantum Polymers maintains a large inventory of ULTEM™ 1000 extruded rods and plates. Rods are available from 1/2″ to 12″ diameter and plates from 3/8″ to 6″ thickness. Our extrusion process optimized for high performance polymer processing along with our proprietary annealing techniques result in very high quality porosity and stress free material.

The ULTEM™ family of amorphous thermoplastic polyetherimide (PEI) resins offers outstanding elevated thermal resistance, high strength and stiffness, and broad chemical resistance. Ultem machined parts are used in oil& gas, medical and chemical applications due to their heat resistance, solvent resistance and flame resistance. ULTEM™ has high mechanical strength and performs in continuous use to 340°F (170°C). ULTEM™ stock shapes uniquely balance both mechanical properties and processability, offering design engineers exceptional flexibility and freedom.

Key Features

  • Long term heat resistance
  • Outstanding strength and stiffness up to 390 F
  • Exceptional long-term hydrolytic stability
  • Predictable dimensional stability
  • Environmental stress and cracking resistance
  • Inherently flame retardant
  • High dielectric strength
