Huntington-based Goodfellow is a leading supplier of metals, polymers, ceramics and other materials to meet the needs of science and industry worldwide. The company has recently launched high-performance polyimide, which can serve as a valuable and viable alternative to metals in demanding applications where weight reduction is required.
Well-suited for use throughout diverse industries, this lightweight polymer is stable across a broad temperature range from -270°C to 300°C. It also offers other outstanding characteristics, including superb radiation resistance, low outgassing in a vacuum, excellent electrical insulation properties, low flammability and high strength.
Goodfellow offers polyimide in a range of forms that include films, laminates, sheets, rods, tubes and fibres. The comprehensive range of Kapton [DuPont] polyimide films includes unfilled (HN) and a number of filled grades with enhanced performance for electrical and thermal conductivity, improved corona resistance, dimensional stability and opacity.
The company specialises in supplying small quantities, a few grammes to a few kilos, of metals and materials for research, prototype development and specialised manufacturing applications. Standard products can be found online at the comprehensive ‘Goodfellow Catalogue’. Custom products and materials in larger quantities are available upon request.
