Ultem® Plastic Machining

Ultem® is a high strength and chemical resistant material.  It can be used in continuous operating environments well over 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Ultem® is a great material for applications in the semiconductor industry, aerospace and medical fields. Ultem® is the choice of material for manifolds, electrical connectors, semiconductor components, machined washers in aerospace, machined bushings in the telecommunication industry and a variety of medical components that are used internally and externally on the human body.


We Know Ultem®

On a daily basis, Brogan & Patrick Mfg. are machining many high-performing plastics.  We understand the complex characteristics required to machine Ultem®.  Utilizing experienced craftsmen with years of Ultem® machining experience gives Brogan & Patrick the edge when a precise, critical part is required.  Stress-relieving Ultem® is critical to being able to produce a precision part. When machining Ultem® it requires managing the stress of the material.  We utilize years of our experience as well as the process of annealing and post-annealing material to provide a stress-free component.  Brogan & Patrick have the right equipment, the right experience and the right processes to provide our customers with the highest level of quality in machining Ultem®.
