Vespel® SP-22 is enhanced with 40% graphite per weight, resulting in minimal thermal expansion and maximal dimensional stability. Furthermore, this grade delivers enhanced wear resistance, lower friction and oxidative stability. If the application requires very tight tolerances under severe wear (bearings, thrust washers, bushings, seal rings …), Vespel® SP-22 will prove itself an excellent solution.
