Because it offers superior resistance to autoclave sanitizing and its FDA/USDA and USP class VI compliant, PEI / Ultem is frequently specified for reusable machined components used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Ultem® Resins were first introduced by General Electric Plastics (GE Plastic) in 1982, and later sold to Sabic. Other material trade names for Sabic Ultem PEI: Tecapei®, Mechetec® PEI, Unitem®, Tempalux®, Sustatec® and others. The Ultem®PEI materials are high performance plastics that perform well at high temperatures and under extreme conditions.
