Aug 2021. Polyphenylene sulfide resin (PPS) is a semicrystalline high-performance thermoplastic characterized by a high heat-deflection temperature, excellent chemical resistance, outstanding dimensional stability, and inherent flame retardancy. It is an excellent alternative to metals and thermosets in differing applications. Reinforcement of PPS improves impact resistance, strength, hardness, temperature resistance, and most other mechanical and physical properties. For these reasons, PPS molding compounds almost always contain glass or mineral reinforcements. For specialty PPS compounds, polymer plus specialty fillers and/or carbon fiber or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) may be included. Automotive parts and components accounted for 39% of world demand for PPS neat resins in 2020, while electrical/electronics uses accounted for roughly 26%. PPS resins for PPS filter bags constituted 15% of global demand, while industrial/mechanical and other uses accounted for the remainder.
