Since 1968, DuPont™ Vespel® has continually developed new materials and products to help our customers push past performance, size and cost barriers to profitable growth. Within display manufacturing, Vespel® parts and shapes are used to improve yields, increase throughput, reduce consumables and increase manufacturing space.
Ideal for use as thermal/electrical insulators, anti-static contact parts, glass edge contact parts and robotic end effectors, Vespel® parts and shapes offer a unique combination of the physical properties of plastics, metals and ceramics, including:
- Low wear and friction at high pressures and velocities
- Outstanding creep resistance
- Performance either with or without lubrication
- Continuous operation from cryogenic temperatures to 288°C, with short-term use to 482°C and above.
- Withstands loads at temperatures beyond the reach of most other plastics
- Low thermal conductivity
- Tailored electrical conductivity, insulative or conductive
- Offers sealing compliance but resists permanent deformation
- Easily machined without special equipment or procedures
Today’s sophisticated display designs require parts that are smaller, stronger, lighter and capable of performing over a wider temperature range than ever before. The following Vespel® products were designed to meet these and other display manufacturing challenges:
