Exceptional Heat Resistance: Ultem is known for its excellent heat resistance properties, with a glass transition temperature (Tg) of around 217°C (423°F). This means it can withstand high temperatures without deforming or losing its structural integrity. This feature makes it suitable for applications that involve exposure to heat or flame, such as aerospace and automotive components.
Outstanding Strength and Stiffness: Ultem boasts a high strength-to-weight ratio and exceptional stiffness. It can maintain its structural integrity even under heavy loads or stress, making it ideal for products that require durability and reliability. SInce Dango Products is known for our precision CNC machined production, this property makes Ultem an ideal plastic to mill and/or lathe.
Chemical Resistance: Ultem is highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including many solvents and acids. This chemical resistance makes it suitable for use in industries where exposure to corrosive substances is a concern.
Excellent Dimensional Stability: Ultem exhibits minimal dimensional changes when exposed to temperature variations, ensuring that products made from this material maintain their shape and dimensions over time. This characteristic is essential for precision engineering and tight tolerances.
Lightweight: Despite its strength and durability, Ultim is relatively lightweight, making it an attractive option for applications where weight reduction is a priority, such as in the aerospace and automotive industries. This sets Ultem apart from other EDC product materials such as metals like steel and titanium, and composites like G10.
FDA Compliant: Ultem is FDA (Food and Drug Administration) compliant, which means it can be used in food-contact applications. This makes it suitable for products like containers and capsules that may hold food and medicine, or kitchen utensils and appliances.
Considering these outstanding properties, Ultem could enhance product durability, longevity, and performance, making it a valuable choice for everyday products for customers. Additionally, Ultem may allow Dango Products to experiment with innovative designs and quickly bring new products and components to market! Stay tuned for more Ultem products coming soon!
