ULTEM®  ULTEM®
Ultem® (now Duratron® U1000 PEI) is an amorphous thermoplastic polyetherimide. Stock shapes from Ultem resin possess a combination of useful characteristics, including high strength at elevated temperatures (340°F continuous), high modulus, and broad chemical resistance. Ultem stock shapes are inherently flame resistant with low smoke emission. Ultem stock shapes display property retention and resistance to environmental stress cracking when exposed to a wide variety of chemicals.

The standard color of Ultem (unfilled) stock shapes is light amber. Glass filled grades appear tan or greenish in color. Custom colors available, minimums may apply.

*Note… As of July 1st, 2010 Quadrant EPP has renamed the Ultem® 1000 product to Duratron® U1000 PEI.
