What is Vespel®? When it comes to advanced industrial plastics, Vespel® runs at the head of the pack. From bearings to critical aircraft parts, this highly durable polyimide can withstand the harshest operating conditions on the planet, thanks to its advanced properties. If you need a plastic that provides excellent, reliable performance in extreme applications, Vespel® is the right choice.
Vespe® is a high-performance polyimide resin that is characterized by its ring-shaped molecular structure containing nitrogen. It combines the best properties of ceramics, metals and plastics into one, offering unique strengths for major performance and cost benefits. It can be used as a lightweight alternative to metal, and is often used in high-heat environments where thermoplastic materials lose their mechanical properties. Vespel®’s outstanding properties include:
With exceptional performance under load and at high temperatures, Vespel® is also:
Vespel® parts are commonly found in automobiles, jet engines, semiconductors, military equipment, and heavy-duty off-road equipment. Vespel® parts can endure the most extreme environments, from deep space to reactor chambers. It is also one of the most commonly used engineering plastics in the aerospace industry: nearly every jet engine made in the Western World contains Vespel® parts.
Our skilled team has ample experience machining custom Vespel® parts for an array of clients. We ensure your Vespel® parts are machined to tight tolerances, on time and on budget. We also work with orders of any size, so there’s no need to worry about meeting a manufacturer’s threshold.
