PLAVISTM POLYIMIDE - Super Engineering Plastic


Based on a unique chemical structure, the super engineering plastic PlavisTM Polyimide possesses outstanding mechanical strength, elasticity and toughness. The material is further characterised by excellent electrical and thermal insulation properties and radiation resistance. It withstands temperatures of up to 300°C and is especially suitable for precision components such as valve seats. In addition to the types below, other variants are available on request.



PLAVISTM has good resistance to many organic solvents, oils and greases including automatic transmission fluid (ATF). It retains its mechanical properties even at high temperatures in contact with lubricants. Thanks to qualities like these, the polyimide is valued by the electrical/electronics, chemicals, automotive, aerospace and defence industries. PLAVISTM is not suitable for exposure to strongly alkaline conditions e.g. with a pH value over 10.
