The Use of Vespel® in Critical Aircraft Parts

vespel aircraft parts

When it comes to critical aircraft parts, you must have confidence in their consistency, safety, and longevity. That is why aviation experts are increasingly turning to high-end plastics to make those critical parts. Vespel® is one of the top choices for aircraft parts because it offers superior performance that even most high-end materials can’t match.

Vespel® by DuPont combines the best properties of ceramics, metals and plastics into one. The product family includes five types of high-performance polymide resin and is characterized by its ring-shaped molecular structure containing nitrogen. While Vespel® parts come at a high cost, they pay for themselves in reduced maintenance costs, increased reliability, and extended operating life.

What Are Static-Dissipative Materials?

Electrostatic discharge (ESd) materials are plastics that reduce static electricity in order to protect electrostatic-sensitive devices or to contain flammable liquids or gases. These materials are divided into three categories: anti-static, conductive, and static-dissipative materials. ESd materials are classified by how quickly electricity moves through the material, with that speed referred to as the “resistance” […]
