40% Glass Fibre Reinforced PPS Rod

40% Glass Fibre Reinforced PPS Rods consist of polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) reinforced with 40% glass fibers. As a composite, they combine the lightweight nature of plastics with the strength of glass fibers. This allows them to offer high strength and stiffness combined with excellent chemical and heat resistance. With 11 diameter variations, from 3mm to 25mm, our range of 40% Glass Fibre Reinforced PPS Rods meet the needs of designers and engineers seeking a high-performance thermoplastic composite. Potential applications include structural components, precision parts, electrical insulators and replacements for metals in corrosive environments.
