Quadrant introduces machinable polyimides and modified PEEK grades
19 July 2010
Quadrant is expanding design and performance possibilities for machined parts in high temperature applications with the launch of Duratron D7000 PI polyimides and modified PEEK Semitron MP370.
Duratron D7000 PI and new bearing grade Duratron D7015G PI are high performance polyimide materials that bring the benefits of polymer materials to applications operating in the region of 315degC. While polyimide has been widely used in semiconductor and electronics manufacturing equipment for years, Quadrant’s new Duratron D7000 PI materials are available in a wider range of sheet sizes and tube configurations than other PIs. As a result, new opportunities in parts design are made possible. It also provides access to these shapes via the strongest worldwide distribution network in the materials industry.
New, homogenous, ceramic-filled PEEK Semitron MP370 gives semiconductor test socket designers a stable platform for innovative design ideas, by allowing builders to more closely tailor the socket material to the application environment.
An extension to the Duratron PAI (Torlon), Ketron PEEK and Semitron ESD materials, Semitron MP370 PEEK is not subject to the “soft centre” or inconsistent physical properties that can be found in injection moulded shapes. As a result of its excellent machinability engineers have the possibility to generate very small diameter holes and very tight hole patterns for the first time with a generic, ceramic filled PEEK.
