Fullerton, CA, August 24, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Professional Plastics, the nation's largest supplier of high-perfromance engineering plastics, has been appointed as a Master Distributor of Meldin 7000 series polyimide shapes from St Gobian. Meldin 7000 series features operational temperatures of 600ºF for continuous operation and 900ºF for intermittent exposure, and tight tolerances of ±0.001 in. on both ODs and IDs. Meldin is currently available in two standard grades: Meldin 7001, and meldin 7021.
MELDIN® 7001, unfilled grade is a thermosetting polyimide made from the unfilled base resin. This grade offers the maximum mechanical properties and high chemical resistance. The MELDIN® 7001 grade is ideal for electrical and thermal insulating applications. More ductile than ceramics, and lighter weight than metals, MELDIN® 7001 is a popular choice for structural parts in aerospace and other applications where metal replacement is desirable.
MELDIN® 7021, 15% by Weight Graphite Filler is a self-lubricating grade, which contains 15% by weight graphite fillers, encapsulated by the base polyimide resin. With its low coefficient of friction and high heat resistance, MELDIN® 7021 provides our customers the best all-around choice for high temperature bearings, seals, and other low-wear applications.
The Meldin 7001 grade is suitable for high-temperature structural, high-purity semiconductor, and welding component applications while Meldin 7021 grade is efficient in stable, low-weight bearing and guideway applications. Both products are finding wide acceptance as economical replacement materials for Vespel® SP-1 & Vespel® SP-21.
