Vespel®

One of the highest performing thermoplastics available on the market, Vespel® can continuously operate from cryogenic temperatures to extreme elevated temperatures up to 900°F in spurts.

Bearing grade Vespel® will successfully operate without lubrication in many high load, high speed, and/or high temperature environments where most other thermoplastic and metal bearings may fail.

For applications requiring low wear and long lifespans in extreme environments, Vespel® exhibits superior performance. Vespel’s extremely low outgassing, radiation resistance, and dimensionally stability make it optimal for Space applications.

Key Characteristics:

  • Long term performance extreme temperatures (260°C or 500°F)
  • Outstanding sealing characteristics with metals
  • Excellent wearing and bear properties without lubicratants
  • Good electrical insulation properties
