PES (Radel A) Plastic Machining

Also called Radel A, PES is an amorphous thermoplastic. It boasts a high resistance to heat, combustion, and chemicals. This lightweight, dimensionally stable material is popular for pumps, valves, medical devices, and other applications. Radel A is well suited to harsh environments such as steam sterilization.

PES (Radel A)

Versatile material with high resistance to heat and combustibility

Radel machined components

Why choose PES?

  • Low smoke generation
  • Excellent electrical properties at elevated temperatures
  • Transparent
  • Good chemical resistance

What are some common PES applications?

  • Pumps
  • Valves
  • Research components
  • Medical devices

Machined components from PES possesses high resistance to heat and combustibility, low smoke emission and transparency. These traits coupled with light weight, good impact resistance, dimensional stability and chemical resistance make parts in PES useful for the electrical/electronics, aerospace and medical device industries. The standard color is amber and the material can be polished and bonded.
