PAI (POLYAMIDIMID) - TORLON®

The combination of excellent mechanical behavior during usage and high dimensional stability mean that high-performance plastic Torlon® PAI is predestined for high temperature applications. The material has good machinability and is therefore the preferred option for precision parts in high-tech devices, as used in the aviation and aerospace sectors and in the semi-conductor industry.

MAIN PROPERTIES

  • Very high upper temperature limit for use in air (+250 °C continuously)
  • Excellent retention of mechanical strenght, rigidity and creep resistance over a wide range of temperatures
  • Extremely low thermal linear expansion value up to +250 °C
  • Excellent resistance to friction and wear (Torlon® 4301 PAI)
  • Superior UV resistance
  • Inherently flame-resistant
  • Unusually resistant to energy-rich radiation (gamma and X rays)

SECTORS

  • Semi-conductor industry
  • Aviation and aeronautics
  • Compressed air technology
  • Medical technology

APPLICATION AREAS

  • Chip holders and mounts
  • Sliding bearing in aerospace applications
  • Insulated parts in electrical/electronic engineering
  • Sliding bushing in hydraulic systems
  • Blades in compressors
