Product innovation: Use of Vespel® in Aluminum Die Casting

Material integration of components can not only enhance performance but save costs.

DuPont Vespel®’s ability to withstand temperature excursions up to 540°C make it an ideal candidate for insert aluminum die casting when a bearing or wear surface is needed on a metallic substrate for improved durability, NVH, and manufacturing simplification. Use of die casting of a Vespel® bearing can save 2 to 3 manufacturing steps in a production line versus common metal bearings.
