PAI Carbon 30%

PAI Carbon 30%


What is the Material: PAI 30% Carbon is an imidized amorphous material filled with carbon fibers.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring reinforced structural properties, while maintaining the properties of other PAI materials including high strength, dimensional stability, diverse chemical resistance, and it maintains its properties at elevated temperatures.

Other Considerations: This material is attacked by hot water and steam. The carbon filler reinforces the structural properties, but it is not abrasive like glass filled can be.
