Polyimide - PI 25% Graphite Lubricated

Advantages

Best friction and wear characteristics of the polyimides contained within Plascams. Slightly higher flexural modulus and lower linear expansion compared with unmodified polyimide.

Disadvantages

Reduced tensile strength, elongation at break, notched impact strength, HDT and oxygen index compared with unmodified polyimide.
