Saint-Gobain Seals and BIEGLO will be showcasing the Meldin 7000 product (thermoset polyimide material) at the October Fakuma Show in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Online PR News – 12-September-2014 – The Meldin product line consists of the most complete range of thermoset polyimide and engineered thermoplastic materials available on the market today. These materials are available in compression or injection molded and machined components as well as basic shapes for customization and design flexibility. Among the different grades, Saint-Gobain Seals Meldin 7000 series is a leading high-performance polyimide product, developed for highly demanding wear, friction and temperature applications such as thrust washers, seal rings, and bearings. These materials are also well-suited for structural component applications requiring extreme electrical or thermal insulation properties, high purity, low outgassing, and outstanding chemical resistance. Some recent application examples include: Meldin OmniGasketTM seals for aircraft de-icing Systems, Meldin seal rings for automotive transmissions and Meldin bearings for launch vehicles such as Falcon 9, Altas V and Delta IV.

The Meldin 7000 product to be featured at the Fakuma show is widely used in many different applications in the aerospace or automotive market but also as a component in industrial machinery such as hot runner nozzles in injection molding machines. When a polymer is being processed by injection molding and has a high melting point (over 250C), not many materials on the market can be used in the application. Without melting, keeping rigidity at high temperatures and being wear resistance (even with abrasive polymers), Meldin 7001 material is a very strong choice for the application as it provides excellent thermal insulation between the melted polymer and the metallic hot runner, preventing the melted material from sticking and facilitating color change.
