EXTEM Resin is an amorphous thermoplastic polyimide (TPI).
The material is characterized by properties such as high tensile strength, rigidity, and excellent creep resistance at temperatures of up to 230°C. EXTEM Resin has high resistance to chemicals and e.g. chlorinated solvents. Furthermore, the material has very good thermostability, with a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 311°C.
EXTEM Resin is a versatile material that offers great flexibility and freedom with regard to the design of a wide variety of products. The material is available in both transparent and opaque variants in a wide range of colors, and with fiberglass reinforcement.
EXTEM Resin is flame retardant without the need for flame retardant additives, and has a limiting oxygen index (LOI) value of 45%.
The material can be processed using the most common methods, such as injection and extrusion-blow molding, with equipment that allows high processing temperatures.
