Authentic Vespel® shapes are a combination of material composition, geometric size/shape and process method manufactured only by DuPont and sold only through DuPont authorized distributors of DuPont™ Vespel® shapes.
Vespel® shapes made from high-performance polyimide or chemical resistant resin which are available in various sizes such as rods, tubes, plaques, rings, disks, bars and balls.
What is the importance of purchasing only Authentic DuPont™ Vespel® shapes?
The DuPont™ Vespel® parts & shapes business produces and markets high quality polyimide based stock shapes. Different manufacturing processes are used to produce shapes of specific size and composition. Product performance is primarily a function of composition and manufacturing process and can be affected by product size. The influence of product size on performance deals with product diameter and not length.
Since Authentic DuPont™ Vespel® shapes are typically the source of machined components, the relationship between process, size, and performance becomes critical to the success of these parts in application. Therefore, it is important to make certain that the particular shape being used is produced by DuPont in the precise size and composition as specified during the qualification process.
