Torlon® poly(amide-imide) exhibits exceptional physical and chemical properties. It can withstand continuous exposure at temperatures from 450F to 500F (230C to 260C). Torlon® 4301 and 4203 resins provide better compressive strength and higher deflection temperature than most other high performance thermoplastics. Their low coefficient of thermal expansion and high creep resistance provide excellent dimensional stability over a wide range of temperatures. Chemically, Torlon® resins are resistant to attack by aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated and fluorinated hydrocarbons and most inorganic salts and acid solutions.

 

Typical Properties

    Torlon® 4203
    Exhibits superior electrical insulation at elevated temperatures and is primarily designed for structural, electrical, and electronic applications. In addition Torlon® 4203 displays excellent resistance to radiation.


    Torlon® 4301
    Retaining the same basic physical and chemical properties as 4203, Torlon® 4301 is designed for bearing and wear applications such as non-lubricated bearings, seals, valve and compressor parts, piston parts, and bearing cages. It is used where high strength, resistance to wear, resistance to elevated temperatures, and solvent resistance are important application requirements. Torlon® 4301 has a very low coefficient of friction and exhibits little or no slip-stick in bearing applications.

There are several other grades of Torlon® available.
