DuPont Mobility and Materials Vespel® ASB-5760 Carbon Graphite
Categories: Carbon; Graphite

Material Notes: The ASB-5000 family was created to withstand the kind of heat that melts glass. The line of metal-supported composites are designed for intensely high-temperature environments. In such applications, ASB is superior to straight-metal parts, especially because of its self-lubricating properties.

Applications: Assemblies consisting of carbon graphite and metallic substrate for:

  • Bushings
  • Washers
  • Slide blocks
  • Track rollers
  • Ball sockets
  • Rod ends
  • Self-aligning spherical bearings
  • Clutch pads

  • Self lubricating
  • Long wearing
  • Low expansion rate
  • Tolerates temperatures from crygenic to 1200°F
  • Ideal for oxidative environments
