Polymics Ltd. has developed stock shapes based on high-performance engineering polymer, polybenzimidazole.
Celazole PBI is available in a range of rod, plate, disk and tubular bar shapes. They are suited to extreme engineering applications such as semiconductor manufacturing, oil and gas exploration components, and aircraft/aerospace uses.
Polymics of State College, Pa., says PBI exhibits the highest strength and stiffness of any unfilled plastic at temperatures above 400° F. For short durations, the material can withstand temperatures as high as 800° F. Stock shapes exhibit high wear and load resistance at elevated temperatures.
Plate offerings measure up to 10.5 inches by 15 inches and are up to 2 inches thick. Rods are supplied in diameters up to 5 inches and lengths up to 15 inches. Tubular bars and disks are supplied with outer diameters of up to 15 inches.
