Meldin 6000 Series Polyimide (PI) is a family of polymers that 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. Not recommended for steam or hot water applications.
Meldin 6000 series is designed to replace other polyimides, metals, ceramics, and plastic parts, MELDIN retains a large percentage of its critical properties from cryogenic to 600 degrees F continuous and 900 degrees F intermittent. Different grades are available.
Meldin 6000 Series Grades: Meldin 6001- An unfilled grade that was introduced before Meldin 2001.It is a pseudo-thermoplastic grade of polyimide. It costs less than 2001. In addition,the properties are a little lower than 2001. Black in Color
Meldin 6021- A 15% Graphite-Filled grade that was introduced before Meldin 2021.It is a pseudo-thermoplastic grade of polyimide. It costs less than 2021. In addition,the properties are a little lower than 2001. Black in Color
Meldin 6030 - An "older" grade of Meldin 2030. It also contains 30% PTFE filler and is a pseudo-thermoplastic material that costs a little less than the 2030. In addition, the properties are a little lower than the 2030 as well. Chocolate Brown in Color
Meldin 6000 series is tending to be slowly replaced by the 2000 series. Meldin 6000 series shapes and parts are supplied as special order rather than from stock.
