50% Long Glass Fiber Reinforced PPS is a subcategory of Polyphenylene Sulfide. The additative is added by weight during the manufacturing process. Its flexural strength ranges from 37300 to 38000 MPa. Its compressive strength ranges from 34200 to 35000 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 5 to 5.5 J/cm. Its molding pressure ranges from 8 to 10 MPa.
Polyphenylene Sulfide, also known as PPS, is a thermoplastic polycondensate. The most common trade name is Ryton. It has high temperature resistance (230 ºC continuous), low temperature endurance, good chemical resistance, and flame retardance. PPS can be used to make high performance electrical connectors and other high stress parts.
