Polyether sulfones

  • Poly(ether sulfones) PES for short, are high performance polymers.
  • The most popular is one made by Union Carbide called UdelTM.
  • Poly(ether sulfones) act a lot like polycarbonates, but they're a lot more heat resistant.
  • Poly(ether sulfones) also can stand up well to water and steam, so they're used to make things like cookware and medical products that need to be sterilized between uses.
