PI Advanced Materials said on Thursday said it has started production of polyimide (PI) powders.
Powders made from PI have excellent heat, electricity, and abrasion resistances, the company said.
The material is in high demand from the semiconductor, display, aerospace, and other advanced industries as its used to make sockets, bearings, rollers, and others to replace metals, PI Advanced Materials said.
As chip and display industries apply more high-temperature processes, the demand for PI powders was also increasing, the company said.
PI powders are also commodities that customers need to continue to replace so its sales will allow PI Advanced Materials to improve its profitability, it added.
The company is also a major supplier of PI films used in displays and PI varnishes.
