DIC recently developped a new grade of PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) compatible with LDS technology.
PPS is a high-performance semi-crystalline polymer, chemically, mechanically and thermally resistant, which can be used above 200° C.
It is widely used in automotive industry, but also for electrical and electronic equipment, and more generally in industry (water distribution for example).
It enlarges the possibilities for 3D MID solutions, with an intermediate plasticl (performance & price) between PA and LCP / PEEK.
