Resin expansion completed for DuPont Vespel parts

Du Pont Engineering Polymers : 04 September, 2006  (New Product)
Staying ahead of increasing demand for DuPont Vespel parts, DuPont Engineering Polymers has expanded its polyimide resin production, providing a 50 percent increase of the resin required for production of direct-formed Vespel SP-1 and SP-21 polyimide parts.
Staying ahead of increasing demand for DuPont Vespel parts, DuPont Engineering Polymers has expanded its polyimide resin production, providing a 50 percent increase of the resin required for production of direct-formed Vespel SP-1 and SP-21 polyimide parts.

Located at a multi-product DuPont site in Circleville, Ohio, the newly commissioned unit is dedicated to production of polyimide resin for direct-formed Vespel S parts made at Pencader, Del., and other DuPont sites. The new operation is already turning out high-quality resin for Vespel SP-21 parts and will soon begin processing material for Vespel SP-1 parts, according to Mark Schmeckpeper, global product manager for Vespel.

Direct-formed Vespel parts combine very high temperature resistance with low wear and low friction. Typical applications include bushings, seal rings, thrust washers, bearings and multi-functional electrical insulating parts. Major end-use industries include automotive, aerospace and semiconductor manufacturing.

Vespel SP-21 parts contain graphite for enhanced wear and friction properties. Vespel SP-1 parts are unfilled, offering excellent cleanliness and insulating properties.
