Resins

December 19, 2006

GE Plastics has launched Extem thermoplastic polyimide (TPI) resins, a new family of amorphous polymers that provide exceptional performance, while elimi­nating the drawbacks of semi-crystalline materials, imidized thermosets and competitive amorphous thermoplastics.  GE’s Extem resins deliver a powerful combination of melt processability and ultra-high thermal, chemical and mechanical properties.  They meet growing industry demand for easy-to-produce parts that can withstand ever-higher temperatures and harsh chemical environments, and remain stiff and dimensionally stable in extreme temperatures.  In addition, GE’s Extem resins are inherently flame retardant without the use of halogenated additives that can pose an environmental risk.
