VTEC™ PI by Richard Blaine International is a self-lubricated, polyimide (PI) grade, which acts like a ceramic. Exhibits dimensional stability, strength at high temperature, low torque, low cost and low outgassing. Shows low moisture absorption, high compressive strength, low friction, non-abrasion, deforming under load, high electrical and mechanical properties. Offers zero metal/mineral extractables, equal CTE in x, y and z directions, resistance to creep, chemical, radiation and plasma etching. VTEC™ PI is recommended for semi-conductor wafer processing, electronic maufacturing, pumps, bearings and valves applications.
