Great for applications that require improved stiffness, glass fiber filled grades with filler levels of 10% – 40% are available. Because it offers superior resistance to autoclave sanitizing and is FDA/USDA and USP class VI compliant, PEI is frequently specified for reusable machined components used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. First introduced by General Electric Plastics (GE Plastic) in 1982, and later sold to Sabic. Other material trade names for Sabic Ultem PEI: Unitem, Tempalux, Sustatec.
