Vespel SCP-5009 polyimide shapes from DuPont assist customers requiring extended part life in sealing and bearing applications, especially in nonlubricated, high-friction environments. Industries where the shapes offer substantial processing, performance, and metals replacement advantages include analytical instrumentation, aerospace, and energy and material handling. An example is a rotor seal used in analytical instrumentation for high-performance liquid chromatography, where traditional engineering plastics deteriorated quickly; the shapes have proven effective in this critical application. The shapes combine resistance to temperatures above 300°C, high compressive and mechanical strength, broad chemical resistance, and low coefficient of friction. They also are easy to machine to near metal-like tolerances from rods or bars.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
