In the world of high performance materials and engineering plastics few products rival the performance and quality of DuPont™ Vespel® stock shapes. The unique combination of characteristics make DuPont™ Vespel® an ideal choice for applications from deep downhole drilling for oil and gas operations to aerospace and aircraft applications. Anywhere that parts will be exposed to extremely broad temperature and pressure ranges.
In addition DuPont™ Vespel® machines very well to tight tolerances for small detailed parts.
Replace Metal Parts with DuPont™
Vespel®DuPont™ Vespel® is popular as a replacement for metal parts. It is lightweight compared to metals and it is self-lubricating, eliminating the maintenance and downtime that use of metal parts requires.
DuPont™ Vespel® machines easily to tight tolerances using the same equipment used to create many metal parts. DuPont™ Vespel® is also an excellent choie for seals and gaskets. It is often a replacement for metal to metal seals. Unlike other plastics, DuPont™ Vespel® can withstand high temperature compression and it has excellent creep resistance for long lasting seals in high pressure environments.
