Ensinger's High Performance category consists of materials designed to withstand the most severe environments. Lighter than most metals, these materials offer weight savings that have the potential to drive lower cost systems. These products also typically have significant resistance to harsh chemicals, and of course the ability to survive and perform in extreme temperatures.
One of Ensinger's most versatile materials, TECAPEEK, is available in a variety of grades to suit your particular situation. All of Ensinger's TECAPEEK product line utilizes Victrex® PEEK™ polymer.

HYDEL® PEI-7 (anti-static)
HYDEL PEI-7 is a static dissipative polyetherimide that utilizes a proprietary nano-tube filler technology which renders this material electrically active. The technology allows for good dimensional stability after machining (unlike conventional carbon fibers), consistent electrical properties, and minimal sloughing. » Read more
TECATOR is a high performance melt processable polyamide-imide, that maintains its excellent mechanical and wear properties in temperature environments exceeding 500°F. It is available in a variety of grades to suit your particular need.
TECATOR GF30 (XP142T) is a 30% glass filled grade, compression molded with superior stiffness and dimensional stability. It is available in a wide variety of custom tube, ring, rod and plate sizes. » Read more
TECASINT polyimides are among Ensinger's highest temperature capable product lines. The materials exhibit excellent thermal stability across temperatures ranging from -454°F to more than 572°F, depending on the grade.
The TECASON product line consists of amorphous materials that bring with them some unique performance characteristics. Among these is their ability to withstand the rigors of steam sterilization, otherwise known as "autoclaving". Because of their resistance to this form of cleaning, they are often used extensively in medical applications.
