Plavis™ Polyimides

The Plavis™ polyimide family has a unique chemical structure that provides properties that no other polymer has been able to match.

Advantages of polyimides

Plavis™ polyimides offer excellent creep resistance, including at very high temperatures, ultra-low outgassing, excellent resistance to wear, in applications with or without lubrication, and excellent mechanical resistance to impact.

Applications of polyimides

As the technical requirements for applications in the most cutting-edge sectors become increasingly extreme (conditions such as strength at very high and very low temperatures, high accuracies that require materials with high dimensional stability, chemical resistance to a wide variety of chemical agents, or high thermal, electrical and magnetic insulation requirements), the development of high performance synthetic materials that respond to these challenges is increasingly necessary.
