Engineering Materials - Thermoset Plastics - Polyimide
Thermoset Plastics

 

Polyimide --

When compared to most other organic or polymeric materials, polyimides exhibit an exceptional combination of thermal stability (>500°C), mechanical toughness and chemical resistance. In addition, they have excellent dielectric properties.

Uses -

Used a lot in wear applications, machined gears, bushings and bearings, aerospace and aircraft parts, ring seals, thrust washers, wear strips. Also, because of their high degree of ductility and inherently low CTE, polyimides can be readily implemented into a variety of microelectronic applications. Multilayer thin and thick film applications on large silicon or ceramic substrates can be readily achieved.
