PolyStar's custom multi-dimensional porous plastics are manufactured in our unique and technologically advanced PolySmart™ manufacturing process and quality control analytics. The result is differentiated, high-quality, specialty porous plastics made to your exacting specifications for dimension, pore size, and void volume.

    Typical applications include:
  • Liquid filters for clarification of drugs, blood separation, and chemicals
  • Air, dust, liquid, and fuel filters for power tools and appliances
  • Filters for drinking water purification
  • Wicks and absorbent media for diagnostic testing
  • Fluid delivery components for printers, copiers, and fragrance wicks
  • Vents and self-sealing valves for medical devices, caps and closures, and automotive batteries

Our cutting edge design capabilities and breakthrough manufacturing processes offer greater flexibility to meet the most challenging design and functionality requirements. PolyStar porous plastics are naturally hydrophobic but can be made hydrophilic. Our components have a typical pore size range from about 10 to about 350 microns with typical void volumes from 30% to 70% and are manufactured from a broad spectrum of polymers such as:

  • Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW-PE)
  • High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
  • Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)
  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)
  • Nylon 6
  • Polyethersulfone (PES)
