    BASF expands Ultrason P range with improved flowability

    BASF is now expanding its Ultrason® P product range with a particularly low-viscosity grade. The new polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) Ultrason® P 2010 is characterized by improved flow behavior in injection molding while maintaining the excellent mechanical properties of Ultrason® P. Thus it is possible to manufacture larger, complex-shaped components, e.g. catering dishes and heat-resistant containers with sophisticated, thin-walled geometries, for catering and aircraft applications. This means that in processing raw material use, energy consumption and component weight can be reduced.
