Selecting Low cost, High heat-resistant plastics

  1. Sep 22, 2015 #1
    Hello,

    For a current project, I am searching for high operating temperature (200C-300C), Medium Strength (~80 Mpa UTS) and low cost plastics (or at least not extremely expensive).

    So far the closest I found is nylon 6/6 reinforced with 30% carbon fiber. I also found something called Vespal made by dupont, with fitting properties.

    Inexpensive AND extreme performance? Does it have to be plastic?

    Well, not necessarily I just assumed the material would be a plastic. Any suggestions?

    T, UTS --- any other constraints?

    no, that's about it.
