Meldin 2000 & Meldin 6000 Series Polyimides Now Available

Professional Plastics, Inc (Fullerton, CA) has been named the exclusive North American & SE Asian distributor of Meldin® 2000 & Meldin® 6000 Series Polyimides from Saint Gobain Performance Plastics.  This product line extension further expands the relationship between the two companies.

Since 2007', Professional Plastics has been the exclusive North American distributor of Meldin® 7000 series polyimide shapes which compete head-to-head with DuPont's Vespel® SP series of polyimides.  The addition of Meldin® 2000 and 6000 series products extends the reach of Meldin® and provides a broader product offering to Professional Plastics' customers.

Meldin® 2000 Series Polyimide products include Meldin® 2001, Meldin® 2021, Meldin® 2030 and Meldin® 2211.  Principal Features of Meldin® 2000 include; excellent tensile strength and elongation, high compressive strength of over 40,000 psi and a usable limit of 34,000 psi at 10% strain, high modulus, superior creep resistance and superb dimensional stability.  Meldin® 2000 products have no observable melting point and provide balanced electrical properties, low outgassing, low friction, and high wear resistance. Meldin 2000 series is designed to replace other economy-grade polyimides (including Meldin 6000), as well as metals and ceramics, but is not suitable to replace premium PI grades such as Meldin® 7000 or Vespel® SP series

Meldin® 6000 Series Polyimide utilizes Saint Gobain's older 1990's polyimide technology, but still provide customers with a very economical polyimide option in the marketplace.   Meldin® 6000 Series products have excellent retention of mechanical and physical properties at high temperatures due to the addition of aromatic raw materials and the building blocks of polyimides. They have excellent resistance to high energy radiation and most chemicals but is not recommended for steam or hot water applications.  Meldin 6000 series is designed to replace other economy-grade polyimide blends, metals, ceramics, and plastic parts, but is not suitable to replace premium PI grades such as Meldin® 7000 or Vespel® SP series.  Meldin® 6000 retains a large percentage of its critical properties from cryogenic to 600 degrees F continuous and 900 degrees F intermittent.
