Abstract

Polyetherimide engineering thermoplastic materials find utilization in a wide range of extrusion and injection molding applications. This family of polymers forms amorphous plastics with high glass transition temperatures (Tg), high strength, and solubility in selected polar solvents. These polymers find applications in many industries including microelectronics, power electronics, lighting, transportation, and medical equipment. This paper provides an overview of properties of ULTEM polyetherimide resins available from GE Plastics.
