When it comes to superior performance, most high-end materials can’t surpass Vespel® by DuPont.
Vespel® is a product family that includes five types of this high-performance polymide resin, characterized by its ring-shaped molecular structure containing nitrogen. Combining the best properties of ceramics, metals and plastics into one, Vespel® machined parts offer unique strengths for major performance and cost benefits.
As a renowned provider of Vespel® machining, we’re familiar with what makes this high-end plastic worth its cost. In this blog, we’ll describe why Vespel® can deliver in the most extreme applications.
Vespel® offers proven reliability in applications for aerospace, electrical insulators, semiconductors, transportation technologies, bushings and beyond. Custom Vespel® parts withstand the toughest environments due to these advanced properties:
Despite their cost, Vespel® components often pay for themselves by increasing reliability, reducing maintenance costs, and extending operating life. Vespel® can be used in new designs that would be impossible with lesser materials, or in components of older designs that have resulted in costly failures. Its excellent machinability makes it possible to use for a variety of parts and shapes.
When it comes to choosing a partner for Vespel® machining, it’s important to look for a team with a history of success.
