|Saint-Gobain is a $26B global company organized into three business sectors:High Performance Materials, Housing Products, and Glass. Organized within theHigh Performance Materials sector is the Polymer Products group,a focused division of the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Strategic BusinessUnit. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics - Polymer Products mission is to providesuperior engineered polymer solutions for demanding component applications usingits high performance polymer expertise and diverse in-house polymer manufacturingcapabilities.
With over 40 years experience in materials technology, Saint-Gobain is recognizedthe world over as a leader in the high performance polymer components business.Its custom-engineered components are designed to withstand the harshest environmentalconditions, making them the ideal solution for a broad range of challengingapplications.
You can trust the Polymer Products group to deliver polymer components with the samevalue and long life that its customers have come to expect from industry-definingmaterials like Rulon® and Meldin®.
The Rulon® product line includes a variety of high-performance bearingsand components, which meet today’s need for enhanced wear performancein a PTFE based material. Primarily used in mechanical, electrical and chemicalapplications, Rulon® withstands a variety of harsh environments such asextreme dryness, cryogenic temperatures, water, steam and hydrocarbon fuel.
The Meldin® product line is the most complete range of polyimide and other engineered materialsavailable today offering some of the best technical performances that can beexpected from a polymer material.
These materials, available in custom molded and machined components and stock shapes for machining, retain their critical properties over a temperature range from cryogenic through +600 degrees Fahrenheit (+315 degrees Celsius) for continuous operation. Superior strength and rigidity, combined with self-lubricating properties, provide long maintenance-free service for the most demanding applications.
Custom components made in these Meldin® and Rulon® materials include:
- Piston rings
- Thrust washers
- Sleeve bearings
- Flange bearings
- Scroll tip seals
- Rotary vanes
- Compressor components
- Dynamic seals
- Linear bearings
