Vespel® TP Thermoplastic Product Family
The broad family of Vespel® TP thermoplastic injection molded materials offer parts of complicated geometries for large quantities of finished parts, especially for aircraft, automotive and industrial applications.
Translucent polyimide parts designed specifically for applications requiring high purity or electrical insulation. Thermoformed or injection molded.
Balanced mechanical and thermal properties. An unfilled thermoplastic polyimide for high-temperature environments.
A filled thermoplastic polyimide that offers outstanding mechanical, thermal, and tribological performance. Excellent strength and toughness, dimensional stability, low outgassing, radiation resistance, creep resistance, and low coefficient of thermal expansion.
An unfilled crystalline version of TP-8169 with improved heat-deflection temperature and lower elongation properties.
An unfilled amorphous thermoplastic polyimide for uses in injection moldable applications. Enhanced elongation relative to TP-8161 and high-temperature resistance.
A filled thermoplastic polyimide for use in high-temperature environments. Balanced mechanical and thermal properties, outstanding electrical insulation, and a low coefficient of thermal expansion.
Temperature-resistant parts with excellent mechanical properties in lubricated or non-lubricated applications.
A blend of fillers in a polyimide matrix for use in high temperature and high-wear applications.
A filled thermoplastic polyimide with a balance of mechanical, thermal, and tribological properties. Excellent strength and toughness, dimensional stability, low outgassing, radiation resistance, creep resistance, and low coefficient of thermal expansion.
Excellent mechanical properties (particularly impact resistance), plus excellent chemical resistance and a high heat-deflection temperature.
Excellent physical properties make it a great product for applications like blower motor bushings on business machines, scanner mirror bushings and more.
Excellent compliance, wear and mechanical properties for seal rings.
A blend of fillers in thermoplastic polyimide matrix with outstanding mechanical, thermal, and tribological performance. Excellent strength and toughness, dimensional stability, low outgassing, radiation resistance, creep resistance, and low coefficient of thermal expansion.
A filled thermoplastic polyimide product that offers a good balance of mechanical and thermal performance. Low friction, dimensional stability, low outgassing, radiation resistance, creep resistance, and low coefficient of thermal expansion.
Vespel® products are made from a variety of materials (polyimides, thermoplastics, composites and chemically-resistant polymers). These products offer a unique combination of physical properties and design flexibility. Parts are available as custom parts, stock shapes, components or assemblies.

Vespel® Case Rings Boost Pump Efficiency and Safety
The operator of a pipeline in the Southwestern U.S. was searching for a case ring material for pumps that would enable improved operating efficiency, increase equipment reliability and avoid the seizing or galling problems encountered with metal components. The metal components were replaced with Vespel® CR-6100 parts, and the results were impressive.
