Polyimides

Polyimides

These imide based materials are aromatic heterocyclic polymers and include some of the highest temperature resistant materials. Outstanding wear resistance, long term thermal stability, and high strength and creep resistance at elevated temperatures are characteristic of this series. Their properties can be enhanced by adding various fillers and reinforcements.

Applications include: Wear strips and pads, Compressor components, Thrust washers, Transmission seal rings, Fuel pump bearings, seals, and valves, Turbocharger bearings, Fuel injector seals and bushings, Starter bushings, Suspension and shock absorber components, High-temperature bushings and bearings, Thermal insulators, Seal rings and Check valve seats
