Description

The TORLON PAI grades, combining excellent retention of mechanical strength, stiffness and creep resistance over a wide temperature range with extremely low thermal expansion up to 250°C, are top-rank materials for high temperature applications.

This compression moulded, 30% glass fibre reinforced grade offers higher stiffness, mechanical strength and creep resistance than TORLON 4203 PAI and TORLON 4503 PAI. It is well suited for structural applications supporting static loads for long periods of time at high temperatures. The suitability of TORLON 5530 PAI for sliding parts, however, is to be carefully examined since the glass fibres tend to abrade the mating surface.

Plastics Applications:

  • Pump components
  • Valve seals (high tech valves)
  • Bearings
  • Rollers
  • High temperature insulators
  • Parts for electronic equipment manufacture
  • Replacement of metals and ceramics
