Polyimide PI material, is manufactured in standard stock shapes for machining and is produced in sheet, rod and tubular bar. Polyimide is a non melting high temperature polymer.
Tight Tolerance Machined Components
Custom Bearings and Wear Components
Polyimide exhibits high strength, dimensional stability, and creep resistance even at temperatures above 260°C. Low wear rates combined with the ability to work in unlubricated conditions and high PV-rates makes it the ideal material for challenging friction and wear applications, extending lifetime and reducing maintenance costs.
High strength, modulus and stiffness also at high temperatures over 260 °C
Excellent thermal and electrical insulation
High purity, low outgassing in vacuum conditions
Inherently flame retardant
Materials available in the following shapes - contact us for more information:
Its high purity and low outgassing are needed for applications in the vacuum, space and semicon industry.
Non melting high temperature polyimide
Long term thermal stability 300°C (short term up to 400 °C)
