High Temperature- And Chemical-Resistant Polyimide Parts


MANSFIELD, MA - Pyropel HD is a high-purity thermoset polyimide machining stock ideal for the manufacture of parts subject to high temperatures or chemical attack. With temperature resistance to 550 deg F, Pyropel HD exceeds the upper continuous use temperature limits of engineering grade thermoplastics such as PEEK and Torlon and is comparable to other thermoset polyimides such as Vespel, Duratron, and Sintimid. Based on its proprietary manufacturing process, Pyropel HD costs up to 40% less.

In addition to providing excellent thermal and chemical resistance, Pyropel HD meets the outgassing and ionic purity standards required of engineering materials used in the semiconductor industry.

Pyropel HD is available machined to print or in standard 12" x 12" plates in thicknesses up to 1". Typical applications include: metal welding and cutting equipment; wafer processing equipment; soldering fixtures; high-pressure thermal spacers in plastic processing equipment; rotor and vane tips for gas turbines; and valve parts, seals, and manifolds for chemical and fluid handling pumps and equipment.
