Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) is an aromatic polymer which is crystalline in nature and contains sulfide linkages. These polymers are characterized by their molecular weight. Three types of polyphenylene sulfide grades are available which include- filled resin, neat resin and glass/mineral filled resins. All the three grades have excellent chemical resistance and high-temperature stability. These polymers differ in their mechanical properties and processibility. Polyphenylene sulfide which is commercially manufactured is segmented into linear and cross linking processes.
