Description: Lapex A compounds are polyethersulfone (PES) products. They are high temperature compounds offering an interesting combination of properties. Lapex A provides outstanding thermal resistance (no load working temperature can reach 170°C, 200°C for short period) high heat deflection temperature, thermal stability for extended use, excellent toughness and exceptional creep resistance. This series also features superior resistance to hydrolysis therefore it is suitable for application with steam and boiling water. Finally, the Lapex A series products are flame retardant without adding additives.Specific Notes for this Material: PES, 20% glass fiber, flame retardant UL94 V0, halogens and red phosphorous freeDisclaimer from LATI: This document contains information based on average values as obtained from the results of laboratory tests and observations made on LATI materials. Tested materials were injection molded, used in their natural color, and conditioned in compliance with Standard ASTM D 618, procedure A. These values refer to LATI's best technical and scientific knowledge at the moment of testing and cannot be used as a basis for the development of applications. For a better assessment of the materials, you are kindly requested to contact LATI's technical or commercial offices, which are at your disposal and will supply detailed information on the most suitable characteristics for their intended use.
