ULTEM™ Resin HU1000

Sustainable Grade Sustainable Grade

ULTEM HU1000 resin is an unreinforced amorphous polyetherimide (PEI) resin that may a high glass transition temperature (Tg) of 217°C. The intended use for this material is in medical devices and pharmaceutical applications. The material is biocompatible (ISO 10993 or USP Class VI) and Healthcare management of change applies. The material may offer Steam-, Hydrogen Peroxide-, Gamma-, EtO-, UV-C- and E-beam resistance for repeated sterilization cycles. It may offer global food compliance (FDA, CN, EC). Features are excellent mechanical, electrical and dimensional properties up to high temperatures. The material may offer very good chemical resistance for an amorphous material and is inherently flame retardant offering UL94 V0 and 5V ratings. The material is RoHS compliant. The base material is transparent amber colored but is also available in custom colors - transparent and opaque.

ISCC+ certified renewable bio-based solutions are available for this grade via differentiated color nomenclature.
