Radel PPSU HC from global chemical manufacturer Solvay is a high-performance industrial additive manufacturing polymer which offers excellent chemical resistance, temperature resistance, impact resistance and great translucency. This HC (Health Care) variant has been ISO 10993 certified for limited contact (less than 24 hours contact with bodily fluids and tissue), so it is an outstanding choice for manufacturing medical devices and other applications within the healthcare industry.
- Radel PPSU can be applied in multiple industries such as healthcare, aircraft and wire insulation, plumbing and food service. An ideal replacement for sterilized metal medical devices such as surgical instruments, implant trials and trays.

Get the performance you need
- Radel PPSU is part of Solvay’s sulfone polymers family. It is an amorphous thermoplastic resin that is transparent, has great hydrolytic stability, is resistant to environmental stress cracking as well as being tough, high in strength and possesses thermal stability.
- Sulfone polymers are known for the high heat deflection (HDT) and outstanding dimensional stability. These polymers are also the only thermoplastics which, when exposed to high temperatures reaching up to 204°C (400°F) for a long term, will stay transparent.
- Sulfone polymers do not get affected by hydrolysis with Radel PPSU even if the latter can cause significant deterioration to polymers in general.
- Sulfone polymers demonstrate a strong chemical resistance to an array of materials such as alcohols, inorganic acids, soaps and detergents, aqueous systems, aliphatic hydrocarbons, and caustics. Sulfone polymers show different measures of chemical resistance which is reliant on their polymeric structure and to the additives used like glass. The chemical resistance can also vary if there are changes to the temperature, reagent, reagent concentration exposure time and amount of stress on said polymer.
