High temperature thermoplastics are characterized by their high heat resistance (>200 °), strength, long-term durability, and biocompatibility. In their molecular structure, it is the use of rigid aromatic rings that yields their temperature resistance. These are used in many medical applications including dialysis membranes, surgical forceps, and implantable devices.
