Special recipes possible
As for other high-performance polymers, the polyimides’ properties can be adapted to the challenge of the specific application by using appropriate filling material combinations. In particular, carbon fibres, molybdenum sulphide, PTFE and graphite play an important role in the optimisation of the properties of polyimides.
STASSKOL holds several standard recipes based on polyimides, however it is also possible to develop customer-specific materials here.
You too can shift the limits of feasibility.
