Quadrant is expanding design and performance possibilities for machined parts in high-temperature applications with the launch of Duratron D7000 PI polyimides and modified Peek Semitron MP370.

Duratron D7000 PI and new bearing-grade Duratron D7015G PI are high-performance polyimide materials that bring the benefits of polymer materials to applications operating in the region of 315C (600F).

Quadrant’s Duratron D7000 PI materials are available in a wider range of sheet sizes and tube configurations than other PIs to provide new opportunities in parts design.

Quadrant recently rebranded its existing portfolio of PAI, PBI and PEI advanced engineering plastics (AEP) under the brand Duratron in order to simplify choice and make products easier to identify based on their performance attributes.

The new Duratron PI grades, available in a range of sizes, are designed to help engineers to select the most suitable products for specific applications and environments.

The homogenous, ceramic-filled Peek Semitron MP370 gives semiconductor test socket designers a stable platform for design ideas by allowing builders to more closely tailor the socket material to the application environment.

An extension to the Duratron PAI (Torlon), Ketron Peek and Semitron ESD materials that are industry standards for this market, Semitron MP370 Peek is not subject to the ‘soft centre’ or inconsistent physical properties that can be found in injection-moulded shapes.

As a result of its machinability, engineers can generate very small diameter holes and very tight hole patterns with a ceramic-filled Peek.

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (QEPP) is the world’s leading manufacturer of semi-finished products made from general engineering and high-performance plastics. Quadrant also designs, develops and produces finished parts and solutions for a broad variety of applications in many different industries globally. Its product range extends from polyamide (PA), polyacetal (POM) and ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) to high-performance materials such as fluoroplastics and polybenzimidazole (PBI), which features temperature resistance to over 425C (800F) while maintaining total dimensional stability. The semi-finished products are machined or thermoformed and used in a variety of industries ranging from electronics through packaging machinery to chemical processing for applications where properties such as non-stick characteristics, abrasion resistance, dimensional stability, chemical and acid resistance or purity are extremely important.

Quadrant’s global teams of product development and applications engineers provide their customers with comprehensive advisory services. The best individual solution is sought for every customer requirement – from the choice of suitable material to optimum design of the finished product and machining of the most sophisticated materialsin state-of-the-art Technology Centres. Quadrant maintains a marketing and sales organization which is capable of pursuing new developments rapidly and efficiently worldwide. Quadrant focuses on growing markets, though many end users operate worldwide and have global requirements for materials and applications consulting.
