Chemical Properties

  • Fully imidized
  • Excellent chemical resistance to acids reaching to the neutral side of the pH scale
  • Excellent resistance to all normal organic solvents, oils and fuels e.g.: nitric acid, hydrchloric acid, acetic acid, formic acid, oxalic acid, ethylene glycol, acetone, benzene, diglycolic methyl ether, methylene glycol, perchioro ethylene, tetrachloro ethane, toluene and tricloroethylene
  • Contact with caustic or base media should be avoided
  • Solubility in high polar solvents such as dimethylformamide (DMF), N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP), etc.

# Dissolving procedure:

Put desired quantity of granulate into clean and dry flask or container. - Add accurate volume of NMP - Close the container tightly and shake imediately and contineousely to avoid agglomeration. Put immediately on a roil jack and dissolve at low speed for 72 hours at room temperature.

# Recommendet solvent:

N-Methipyrrolidone (NMP)

# Limit of possible solid content:

appr. 30 %

# Important note:

Do not use high speed mixers for acceleration of dissolving process. Also do 'nt heat solution.

# Drawing of roll jack:


  • Application by casting, dipping, spin-coating, spraying (only low viscosity) or roller coating
  • Non-compatibility with non-solvents (precipitation of polymer). Since the solvents used are hygroscopic, coagulation can also be triggered off by moisture
  • Do not use mixers with high shear rate to incorporate additives like fillers
  • Thermal drying without chemical reaction. Temperatures around T g wilt induce some crosslinking.
