Vespel® combines heat resistance, lubricity, dimensional stability, chemical resistance, and creep resistance. Ideal for use in hostile and extreme environmental conditions.

Vespel® is a high performance polyimide material which is formed from resin manufactured only by DuPont. Polyimide materials are characterized by a ring-shaped molecular structure containing Nitrogen. Vespel® is one of the highest performing engineering plastics currently available. Vespel® will not melt and can operate continuously from cryogenic temperatures to 550°F (288°C), with excursions to 900°F (482°C). Vespel® parts exhibit superior performance in a variety of applications requiring low wear and long life in severe environments.

Vanderveer Industrial Plastics stocks Vespel® rods, tubes, and sheets for close tolerance CNC machining.
