PSU is a high temperature, amber colored, semi-transparent amorphous thermoplastic. Its properties remain relatively consistent over a wide temperature range. PSU is known for its toughness and stability at elevated temperatures. It is resistant to degradation from hot water and steam sterilization and has excellent chemical resistance to acidic salt solutions. It can be used as a superior replacement to polycarbonate or acrylic in specialty applications.
