Quality characteristics of Thermosetting POLYIMIDE powder
Using sinter technology, polyimide powder can be manufactured into semi-finished products and components. In addition, it can be used as a compounding material to produce parts and/or coatings with enhanced thermal properties.
Industrial applications profiting from this material’s effectiveness range from automotive industry and aerospace to industrial applications and office machines.
Moreover, compounds with solid lubricants like graphite, molybdenum sulfide or PTFE can be used for tribologically demanding applications.
Polyimide powder is used to produce high temperature, self-lubricant and wear resistance semi-finished and finished parts through compression molding or direct forming.
In conclusion thermosetting Polyimide is used in many different industries as it has enhanced thermal properties:
- Compounding material
- Tribological demanding applications
- Automotive, aerospace and industrial
- High-temperature resistant
- Wear resistant
Applications of Thermosetting POLYIMIDE Powder
The range of products that can be produced from our POLYIMIDE Powders is only limited by the processing machines. Polyimide powder can be processed by hot compression molding, direct forming, iso-static compression molding or it can be compounded with other materials as an additive.
It is used to produce high strength and heat resistance gears, bearing, sealing elements, etc. and to produce non-toxic fire-retardant products.
Further, polyimide powder is often compounded with PTFE to increase certain properties of the PTFE.
- hot compression molding
- direct forming
- gears, bearings, sealing elements
- incresing properties of PTFE
