For applications that depend on dimensional stability, tremendous stiffness, and wear resistance, Torlon PAI (polyamideimide) is the ideal polymer for the job. This thermoplastic boasts versatile performance capabilities and has proven to be useful in an extensive array of applications. The shapes that are available in this material are provided in compression and extruded molded grades. Furthermore, when it comes to high temperature applications, this superior polymer offers an outstanding blend of dimensional stability and mechanical performance.
There are many key characteristics that make Torlon a cut above the average thermoplastic, such as:
- Continuous superb dimensional stability in temperatures as high as 500°F
- Amazing frictional and wear behavior
- Great UV-resistance
- Outstanding retention of mechanical strength, creep resistance, and stiffness across a broad range of temperatures
- Inherent low flammability
- Significant resistance against high energy radiation
The different Torlon grades are suitable for diverse applications including, but not necessarily limited to: high temperature electrical connectors, bearing cages, rotary compressor vanes, chip nests and sockets, beaker welding supports, and can mandrels.
Torlon is the highest performing, melt processable plastic, and has been developed to provide engineers and designers with exceptional performance at outstanding value for every application environment in which it can be employed.
