Meldin® 7000 series materials exhibit extremely high dimensional stability at elevated temperatures. Testing has shown Meldin® 7000 to have less than 0.04% variation from its original dimensions after cycling from 73°F (22.77°C) to 500°F (260°C) over a 2-day period. The material is able to withstand thermal shocks very well, adding to the dimensional stability of the material.
