Plastics for high temperature environments and applications
High temperature applications require plastic materials that can resist thermal degradation and maintain sufficient strength and stiffness at the required operating temperature.
High temperature applications often require plastics to have good creep resistance, chemical resistance, and friction and wear performance. Dimensional stability can be a concern when plastic components are used in contact with metal parts.
