Polyimide material is one of the highest performing engineering plastics currently available. It is readily machined into a variety of components for semiconductor, medical, aerospace, automotive and other high-technology uses. Vespel ® and Plavis ® polyimide materials are typically used to manufacture rotary seal rings, thrust washers and discs, bushings, plungers, wear strips, and thermal and electrical insulators.
Plavis and Vespel material properties include an extremely wide temperature range ... polyimides will not melt and can operate continuously from cryogenic temperatures to 550°F (288°C), with excursions to 900°F (482°C). Polyimide parts consistently exhibit superior performance in a variety of applications requiring low wear and long life in severe environments.
