Ryton - Polyphenyl Sulfide

What is Ryton?

Ryton, polyphenyl sulfide, unmodified or modified with glass fibers or other modifiers such as PTFE, MoS or graphite are used primarily structural components. Characteristics are high stiffness, extremely high use temperature (up to 600 degrees F), excellent chemical resistance, and excellent electrical properties.

In both modified and unmodified forms, Ryton exhibits excellent machinability, with optical finishes possible by grinding and lapping.

The superior friction and wear properties of Ryton make it ideally suited for bearing applications in lubricated or non-lubricated service. Their excellent thermal and chemical resistance properties also make Ryton very suitable in high temperature and corrosive environments.
