Application Space: Meldin® Polyimides

Satellites are designed to be as light and compact as possible, especially in small satellites and nanosatellites. Polymer materials such as Meldin® 7000 polyimide solutions are a preferred choice for various type of structural connectors compared to metal and ceramics, in terms of mechanical properties and structural strength. As moving components, the materials must also handle friction and wear since each component needs to last 10 to 15 years. View this video to see where what these components do on these satellites!
