Polyimide, also known under its abbreviation PI, can be used at high (and extremely low) temperatures, has no visible melting point and thus retains good shape stability and mechanical properties. The upper threshold at short peak temperatures is 450°C. Polyimide also extinguishes flames, is electrically insulating, resists energy-rich radiation and has minimal outgassing in a vacuum. Thanks to its intrinsic purity, PI sheets and poles are frequently used in high purity applications, such as semi-conduction, the aerospace industry and primary research (CERN).
