Duratron PBI (CU60) | Plastic Stockist
Plastic Stockist provides a great range of Duratron PBI plastic
, previously known as Celazole PBI which offers
the highest temperature resistance and best mechanical property retention
over 200°C, of all unfilled thermoplastics. Duratron 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 such as semiconductor and aerospace industries.
Usually Duratron PBI is used in critical components to decrease maintenance
costs and to gain valuable production 'uptime'. It is used to replace
metals and ceramics in pump components, valve seats (high tech valves)
bearings, rollers, high temperature insulators.
Common uses for Duratron PBI
Duratron PBI is commonly used for high heat insulator
bushings as there was a need for a material that could endure the high
temperatures but did not stick to the finished moulded parts. The benefits
are that Duratron PBI is unique in its ease of clean up in hot runner
systems. Moulded parts do not stick to Duratron during their 'freeze' cycle
in the mould. This plastic is also used for vacuum cups for a more
cost-effective solution for an extremely high temperature glass handling
application. Duratron PBI outperformed prior materials
and reduced the component cost.
