*** ULTEM 1000 Polyetherimide is a high heat and flame resistant polymer with low smoke properties specifically designed by General Electric.
Available in Round Only.

+ Stainless Steel type A-286 excellent service up to 1300ºF requiring high strength and good corrosion resistance.

Flame Resistance: Exceptional flame resistance with a limiting oxygen index and low NBS smoke evolution make ULTEM 1000 polyetherimide ideal for interior components in aircraft, bus, and other vehicles where such properties are required.

Properties: High heat resistance; Exceptional flame retardance – U.L. V-O rated; Low smoke; High dielectric strength; Low dissipation factor over a wide frequency range; Stable dielectric constant over varying temperatures and frequencies; Outstanding mechanical properties; Broad chemical resistance; Excellent machinability; Transparent.
