DuPont™ Vespel® ASB Assemblies
Vespel® ASB assemblies include fastening/bonding composites or carbon-graphites to supporting metallic structures or overmolding/insert molding one material with another material, such as a thermoplastic.
Such integration capabilities provide an expanded set of possibilities to help solve challenges.
Track liners and wear strips comprised of composite liners bonded to metal retainers for high load applications
ASB-0826 & ASB-3000
Higher thermal capability than ASB-0664 and ASB 0670. Intended for self-lubricating bushings that require high load capacity.
Carbon-graphite, metal-backed assemblies used in applications where polymeric composites are not suitable due to thermal limitations. The metal backing provides ease of assembly while the carbon-graphite liners provide the self-lubrication and low wear at temperatures up to 675°C (1250°F) in oxidative environments.

Vespel® Case Rings Boost Pump Efficiency and Safety
The operator of a pipeline in the Southwestern U.S. was searching for a case ring material for pumps that would enable improved operating efficiency, increase equipment reliability and avoid the seizing or galling problems encountered with metal components. The metal components were replaced with Vespel® CR-6100 parts, and the results were impressive.
