PBI Performance Products S26 Thermal Resistant Polybenzimidazole Solution
Categories: Fluid; Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polybenzimidazole (PBI)

Material Notes: Polybenzimidazole (PBI) solutions are suitable products for film casting, dip coating, spray coating and resin impregnation. PBI can be firmly adhered to steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, nickel- chromium, glass, ceramics and plastics. PBI coatings are highly resistant to heat and chemical attack. PBI will provide electrical insulation and wear resistance.
S26 is a solution containing nominally 26% w/w PBI solids in conjunction with 1.5% w/w LiCl salt in dimethylacetamide (DMAc) to  form a 2100 Poise solution. This grade is easily thinned and can be used for films or coatings.
The LiCl stabilizer imparts long shelf life and can be easily removed with an 85°C, 1-hour, aqueous wash of a thin film.
