Ideal for low speed, high load, high impact applications
WearComp® is a blend of a high temperature polymer and 1" chopped carbon fiber. This unique combination provides a low coefficient of friction, outstanding mechanical strength, and wear resistance at temperatures up to 600°F.
Ideal for high speed, medium load, low impact applications
FibreComp® is a blend of a high temperature polymer, milled carbon fiber, & graphite. This unique combination provides, our lowest coefficient of friction, superior mechanical strength, and wear resistance at temperatures up to 600°F.
FibreComp® is also ideally suited as an alternative to Vespel® SP-1 & SP-21 as well as Meldin® 7001 & 7021 where cost and performance are a concern. (Vespel® is a registered trademark of DuPont and Meldin® is a registered trademark of St. Gobain)
Ideal for medium speed, high load, high impact applications
WearComp200 is a blend of a high temperature polymer and 1" chopped carbon fiber. We add a graphite compound to enhance the already low coefficient of friction. This product offers outstanding mechanical strength, and wear resistance at temperatures up to 600°F.
H320™ is a blend of a high temperature thermoset polymer and 1" Glass Fiber. This unique combination provides the highest strength at temperatures up to 600°F. This material is best suited for high temperature heat shields and high temperature electrical insulation applications.
PolyEtherEtherKetone – A high performance thermoplastic that can operate continuously at 480°F. PEEK has excellent chemical resistance with very low moisture absorption. It also carries V-O flammability rating, exhibiting very low smoke and gas emission when exposed to fire.
PolyAmide-Imide – Capable of performing under harsh stress conditions at continuous temperatures of 500°F. Torlon® is the highest performing melt-processable plastic, and provides greater compressive strength and higher impact resistance than most other plastics.
PolyEtherImide – A high performance polymer combining strength and rigidity at elevated temperatures with long-term heat resistance. Ultem® also offers tremendous dimensional stability combined with broad chemical resistance.
PolyPhenylene Sulfide – PPS is inert to steam, strong bases, fuels and acids. Ryton's® minimal moisture absorption and a low coefficient of linear thermal expansion make it ideal for precise tolerance machined components.
PolyCarbonate - A strong, tough, rigid material that has the ductility of softer, lower-modulus thermoplastics and excellent electrical insulating characteristics. Applications are glazing, appliances, water bottles, and electrical uses.
The generic name for a family of long-chain polyamide engineering thermoplastics. Nylons are synthesized from intermediates such as dicarboxylic acids, diamines, amino acids and lactams. Typically used in automotive parts, electrical uses, and packaging.
A lower cost compression or transfer moldable thermoset material which comes in BMC and SMC. It is commonly reinforced with other resin matrices or fiber fillers like carbon and glass. This material family has good mechanical / electrical properties and is chemically resistant.
Epoxies show good electric and heat resistance and offer dimensional stability with favorable mechanical properties. These thermosets are compression or transfer molded, and come in SMC or BMC. They can be reinforced with resin and/or fiber fillers such as carbon or glass and are most commonly used in electro-structural applications.
This thermosetting material offers a unique combination of mechanical toughness, chemical / heat resistance, and great dielectric properties. These materials come in bulk and sheet and are either compression or transfer molded. As with most thermosets, these can be easily reinforced with both long and short fibers.
