Radel® Polyphenylsulfone & Udel® Polysulfone 

Foster is an official distribution partner for Solvay Specialty Materials. Foster's position is unique in that we provide medical market customers with Radel® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) and Udel® polysulfone (PSU) in less than 2,200 pound quantities.

Solvay’s Radel® PPSU is a super-tough, transparent polymer that can withstand more than 1,000 cycles of steam sterilization without significant loss of properties. This makes it an excellent choice for sterilization cases and trays, surgical instrument handles and other reusable medical devices. Udel® PSU is a rigid, high-strength, transparent polymer that offers higher heat resistance and better hydrolytic stability than polycarbonate. It retains its mechanical properties when exposed to steam and other sterilization techniques. 

Available Medical Grades:
Radel®:
Radel R-5000
Radel R-5100
Radel R-5500
Radel R-5800

Udel®:
Udel P-1700
Udel P-1710
