Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is a partially crystalline, high temperature performance polymer which has a high melting point of approximately 280°C, excellent chemical resistance and is inherently flame retardant. Through the innovative technologies for compounding and polymerization, DIC.PPS realizes superior characteristics as an engineering plastic, and is utilized for various applications such as alternatives to metals and thermoset plastics in automotive,Electrical&Electronic,and Industrial market.


DIC Develops World’s First PPS Compound for MID Laser Direct Structuring (LDS)

DIC Corporation has developed and commercialized the world’s first PPS injection molding compound for Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) technology. This process allows for selective metal plating of three-dimensional (3D) mechatronic parts. LPKF Laser & Electronics, a German-based laser manufacturer, recently tested and approved DIC’s new PPS compound for use in LDS technology.


Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) resin is a crystalline heat resistant polymer that has a simple chemical structure made from benzene and sulfur. This resin possess high heat resistance with a melting point of approximately 280°C and excellent chemical resistance, along with self-extinguishing without adding flame retardants.

DIC is expanding worldwide as the leading company for PPS with innovative product development capabilities and the world's largest global production capacity.

DIC.PPS is available in product families that correspond to various demand characteristics and applications.

Applications are expanding based on alternatives to metals and thermosetting resins.
