TORLON (Polyamide-imide)

Torlon PAI is the best performing, melt processable plastic material. It has superior resistance to elevated temperatures and is capable of performing under severe stress conditions at continuous temperatures to 500°F (260°C).

Material Availability

  • Extruded Sheet
  • Compression Molded Sheet
  • Extruded Rod
  • Compression Molded Rod
  • Extruded Tubing 
  • Compression Molded Tubing
  • Compression Molded Rings and Disks
  • Injection Molded Tubing
  • Tight Tolerance CNC Machined Components
  • Custom Gears
  • Custom Bearings and Wear Components

Parts machined from Torlon stock shapes provide greater compressive strength and higher impact resistance than most advanced engineering plastics.

Torlon Plastic Part

Torlon has an extremely low coefficient of linear thermal expansion and high creep resistance. Torlon is an amorphous material with a Tg (glass transition temperature) of 537°F
