Conventional PPS resins retain chlorine and sodium left over from their raw materials and also contains various byproducts, all of w hich can lead to the corrosion of production molds and functional deterioration of final metal parts, such as defective contacts.

Teijin, w hich w idely supplies high-performance materials including PC resin and compounds to companies in the automotive and electronics fields, is improving its solution capabilities, expanding its resin lineup and providing compound and resin parts. SK Chemicals, w hich possesses innovative technology for the production of chlorine- or sodium-free PPS resins, has been exploring opportunities to enter the PPS-compound field on a full scale.
