CarbonX™ PEI + CF [Aerospace] is made using Sabic Ultem™ 9085 PEI (polyether imide) and Toray Torayca™ T800 Aerospace-grade carbon fiber. Toray’s T800 aerospace-grade carbon fiber offers excellent strength and stiffness and couples excellently to Ultem™ 9085 – creating an outstanding material with excellent flammability, thermal, mechanical, and chemical resistance properties.
Product attributes include:
The excellent balance of flame retardancy, low smoke emission, and low smoke toxicity of ULTEM PEI+CF makes it an excellent candidate for aerospace and aircraft applications. ULTEM offers low toxicity, smoke, and flame evolution. Ultem resins are found in applications such as personal service units, oxygen panels and components, ventilation system components, connectors, cable ducts, latches, hinges, food tray containers, door handles, and interior cladding parts.
PEI+CF resins provide automotive manufacturers with a high performance, chemically resistant, thermally-stable, cost-effective alternative to metal that is strong enough to replace steel in some applications yet light enough to replace aluminum in others. For applications like transmission components, throttle bodies, ignition components, sensors, and thermostat housings.
PEI+CF may be an excellent material choice for today’s demanding electrical applications, including connectors, MCB components like housings, shafts and levers, hard disk drive internals, FOUPs, BiTS, PCBs, MCCB internals, Plenum devices, LCD projector internals, fuel cell components, and many other applications.
