Main characteristics

  • Extremely high maximum allowable service temperature in air (310°C continuously, going up to 500°C for short periods of time)
  • Excellent retention of mechanical strength and stiffness over a wide temperature range
  • Excellent wear & frictional behaviour
  • Extremely low coefficient of linear thermal expansion
  • Excellent resistance against high energy radiation (gamma - and X rays)
  • Inherent low flammability
  • High purity in terms of ionic contamination
  • Good electrical insulating and dielectric properties
  • Low outgassing (dry material)

Applications

Light bulb contact parts, electrical connectors

Celazole PBI (now Duratron CU60 PBI) (black) (PBI)

Celazole PBI (now Duratron CU60 PBI) offers the highest temperature resistance and best mechanical property retention of all unfilled thermoplastics. Celazole PBI (now Duratron CU60 PBI) is very "clean" in terms of ionic impurity and does not outgas (except water). These characteristics make this material extremely attractive to high-tech industries e.g. semiconductor and aerospace industries. Usually Celazole PBI (now Duratron CU60 PBI) is used for critical components to decrease maintenance costs and to gain valuable production "uptime".

Delivery Programme: rod 9.53 - 101.60 mm, plate 12.7 - 38.10 mm, tube 42.86 - 138.11 mm
