High-Performance Polymers for the Automotive Industry
The automotive industry demands high-performance materials that withstand extreme temperatures, pressures, and vibrations.
Firstly, AURUM™ Thermoplastic Polyimide, with its high glass transition temperature (Tg) of 245°C 473°F), is advantageous to the automotive industry because of its high mechanical strength. Furthermore, its tensile strength is exceptional and can withstand pressure without breaking down, while its thermal resistance of up to 572°F makes it a versatile material for various performance applications.
Sealings, rings, gaskets, gearings, bearings, bushings, and screws are widely recognized and usual applications created explicitly for automotive purposes. These materials are ideal for engines, transmissions, and other critical automotive components to provide excellent chemical resistance due to their low friction and high-temperature stability.
Additionally, BARplast LLC's PEEK and Polyimide components offer automotive manufacturers a durable and cost-effective solution for their most demanding applications.
In automotive applications, washers spread the load of a bolt or screw and protect surfaces from harm. Sealings are utilized in automotive systems, such as engines, transmissions, and brakes, intending to avoid the leakage of fluids or gases.
In addition, Dry bearings can be used in automotive applications to support rotating shafts without lubrication,while bushings provide support and guidance for revolving or sliding components, such as steering columns or suspension systems.
AURUM™ TPI, with its high glass transition temperature (Tg) of 245°C 473°F), is advantageous to the automotive industry because of its high mechanical strength. It has a tensile strength which withstands pressure without breaking down.
Its thermal resistance of up to 572°F makes it a versatile material for various performance applications. Moreover, Meldin® 7000 series with a working temperature of 600°F (315°C) applies to automotive brake system sensors, and its benefit is that it does not interfere with electrical signals in detectors and does not melt. Furthermore, It has a low thermal conductivity indicating its limited capacity to transfer heat.
In conclusion, BARplast LLC sells AURUM™ TPI, PEEK, and Polyimide products suitable for the automotive industry. Our variety of polymer materials has a solution for almost any problem!
