AURUM® Thermoplastic Polyimide Powder
The advantages of AURUM® are the extremely high glass transition temperature (Tg) of 245°C and its outstanding mechanical and chemical properties across a wide range of temperatures. Compounders and other converter that are able to melt-process polymers at elevated temperatures can use AURUM® to produce parts with superior thermal and mechanical properties.

Typical applications are high-performance washers, ball-bearing cages, dry bearings, seals and gears - where excellent mechanical & tribological properties and temperature resistance are paramount. In addition, AURUM® is usable for advanced coatings, and clean-room applications due to low trace amounts of outgasing and metallic impurities. Used in aviation, automotive and other industries, AURUM® can be compounded and converted like any other thermoplastic.
