The following table provides an overview of various plastics and shows their temperature resistance for both the maximum and minimum temperatures. The table is sorted in ascending order according to the maximum temperature. It serves as a selection aid to choose the plastics that can be used in the respective application cases.
There is a special note to PP gray: this material has a lower operating temperature of 5 ° C, which is why it is shown in the diagram in the positive area. The diagram shows the maximum permanently possible operating temperature for the upper area. There are several plastics with an even higher short term temperature resistance.
A short glossary of the material designations in the above diagram:
Here are detailed informations for the plastics (in German language).
