||ACUDEL 22000 is a polyphenylsulfone-based polymer blend. It is a high-heat, high-performance resin formulation exhibiting very good hydrolytic stability, excellent resistance to acids and bases, and good resistance to stress cracking under a broad range of chemical environments. In addition to these attributes, ACUDEL 22000 resin exhibits robust toughness and improved notch resistance compared to both UDEL® polysulfone and RADEL® A polyethersulfone, although slightly lower than that of neat RADEL® R polyphenylsulfone. In general, the performance profile of ACUDEL 22000 resin is intermediate between that of polysulfone and polyphenylsulfone.
In addition to its high mechanical and thermal performance attributes, ACUDEL 22000 resin also offers very good electrical properties over a broad temperature range as well as inherent flame retardancy. The material exhibits excellent flow characteristics and can be readily processed using conventional injection molding equipment.
The “natural” version of ACUDEL 22000 is designated ACUDEL 22000 NT15 and its color is an opaque light beige. It is available in black as ACUDEL 22000 BK937 resin. ACUDEL 22000 resin can also be made available in a variety of colors.
