CELAZOLE® T-SERIES

PBI PAEK POLYMER COMPOUND

Superior polymer durability for your high performance thermoplastic needs

Celazole® T-Series products are PBI compounds designed for injection molding and extrusion.  Combining the superior mechanical properties and thermal resistance of PBI with the melt process ability of polyaryletherketones (PEEK or PEKK), these products offer cost-effective high performance. These products are available in pellet form.

Celazole® PBI (polybenzimidazole) is a unique and highly stable heterocyclic polymer.  PBI polymers are characterized by high thermal stability; exhibit high strength, broad chemical resistance and unique compatibility with certain other polymers including the polyaryletherketone family.

WEAR RESISTANCE

4x increase in light fixture production compared with polyamideimide

HIGH STRENGTH

TF-60C has 15,000 psi flex strength at 500°F (100 MPa flex strength at 260°C)

COST EFFECTIVE

T-Series products are 100% melt processable

Grades & Properties

PBI PEEK compounds

TU-60

Celazole® TU-60 is a high performance unfilled blend, ideal for applications requiring no fillers. This material works well for complex geometries and offers the best process ability. It is ideal for lamp sockets, connectors and backup seals.

TL-60

Celazole® TL-60 is a lube grade blend offering superior wear resistance, low friction, chemical resistance and high load bearing capability. It’s well suited for rotor vanes, thrust bearings, plane bearings, bushings and other friction management applications – particularly under load.
