PPS Grades reduce distortion during strand/film extrusion.

Fortron-® PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) SKX 228C is general-use resin, while Fortron-® PPS SKX 433C is stabilized to permit continuous use at higher temperatures. Grades are formulated by modifying chemistry of PPS to gain rheological characteristics needed for extrusion applications. Products limit stretching and deformation of unsupported filaments and webs before they cool and set after...
