To its current product portfolio, Bieglo High-Performance Polymers (Hamburg, Germany) has added polybenzimidazole (PBI) and ultra-high temperature thermosetting polyimide (PI-s) to its product families.

According to Bieglo, PBI is one of the highest-performing thermoplastic materials, offering heat resistance as well as excellent mechanical strength. The company’s Dexnyl PBI shapes are reported to have a heat-deflection temperature (HDT) of 410°C, strong mechanical properties, and optimal chemical resistance. The company says this product is ideal for sealing, glide-ring, bearing and various insulation applications.

Thermosetting polyimides, PI-s are the highest temperature-resistant polymers commercially available, Bieglo says. The company now offers PI-s products with heat-deflection temperature (HDT) as high as 500°C.

The company also supplies polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and polyamideimide (PAI).
