Polymides

New Technology Plastics is a distributor for a variety of Polyimide materials. Polyimides PI material, (chemically known as Polyimides) is manufactured in standard stock shapes for machining and is produced in sheet, rod, and tube. In addition to the sintering process used to produce stock shapes, finished components can be cost effectively produced in larger quantities using the direct forming process.

PI plastic is a non-melting high temperature polymer. Strength, dimensional stability, and creep resistance remain high even at temperatures above 260°C. Low wear rates combined with the ability to work under unlubricated conditions and high pV-rates makes it the ideal material for challenging friction and wear applications, extending lifetime and reducing maintenance costs. Its high purity and low outgassing are needed for applications in the vacuum, space, and semiconductor industry.
