PAI (Polyamidimide) Torlon®
An early member of the high performance plastics family, PAI is a high strength, high temperature (500°F max) polymer that is injection molded and oven “cured” to produce a thermoset polymer with excellent bearing properties. PAI has the highest tensile strength of all non-filled, injection moldable materials. It should be noted that water absorption can be a concern and a 17 day post cure process is required. Use of this material requires special certification which we have obtained.
- Low friction/wear
- High compressive strength
- Outstanding performance at elevated temperatures.
