Temperature extremes, high friction, and heavy loads? Vespel® has outperformed other engineering materials under the most severe conditions since 1965. Highly demanding applications like aerospace components, semiconductor processing, automotive manufacturing, and energy production rely on Vespel® parts to keep their equipment running. Vespel® polyimide materials provide continuous operation at cryogenic to high temperatures; low wear and low friction at high PV in lubricated or unlubricated environments; outstanding creep, strength, and impact resistance; exceptional dimensional stability; low thermal expansion; and easy machinability. Vespel® makes lighter weight parts not only practical, but, in many cases, better than standard metal, ceramics, and other engineering polymers such as PEEK (polyether ether ketone) and PAI (polyamide-imide). With design centers in Asia, Europe, and the Americas, DuPont technicians collaborate with customers to combine materials science with design to produce high-performance parts and keep production running smoothly. Vespel® parts and shapes, both custom and stock, have been tested and proven effective in highly demanding applications around the globe. They are available in sheet, rod, tube, plaque, bar, disk, ring, ball, and custom machined parts.

They also exhibit very good retention of flexural strength after cycling. Lytex 9063 is 63% fiberglass-reinforced epoxy. Lytex 4149 is 55% carbon fiber reinforced. Short curing cycle compared to conventional epoxy pre pregs, laminates, compounds and molding processes. Design flexibility in terms of 3-D geometry and varying part / cross section thickness. Ability to mold thick cross sections (e.g. 3" plus)

Daron®

Product Families: Other Polymers & Resins

Daron® resin series include a full range of products suitable for applications with elevated performance requirements. These resins are based on vinyl ester, vinyl ester urethane and hybrid chemistries, and available either as one component (1K) or two component (2K) system. Using Daron® resins enable the manufacturing of components with special properties. This can include features like high strength, stiffness and inter-laminar shear strength, low weight (particularly when used with Carbon fibers), resistance to elevated temperatures up to 220 °C, and superior fatigue resistance competing in many cases with equivalent systems based on Epoxy resins. Daron® resins can often be used both with glass fibers and Carbon fibers, because of their superior fiber wetting and, in some cases, relative insensitivity to fiber sizing type. Typically, these resins cure faster, cure at lower temperatures and require less post-cure when compared to Epoxy resins. This translates into reduced cycle times, extended mold lifetime expectancy and reduced cost
