PAI sheet (polyamide-imide/Torlon) is a high-performance material with maximum service temperature of 260°C, thus offering excellent mechanical strength at elevated temperatures. PAI sheet is also known to have very good dimensional stability.
We supply PAI sheet (polyamide-imide sheet) and PAI plate (polyamide-imide plate) in various sizes and thicknesses.
- Torlon 4203 – Standard grade with excellent electric properties (Yellow-ochre)
- Torlon 4301 – Rubbing grade with high resistance to friction and wear (Black)
- Torlon 5530 – Mechanical strength and dimensional stability improved grade by containing glass fibre (Khaki-gray)
- Torlon 520HR
Also available: Torlon Rod.
Torlon sheet and Torlon plate are used for various purposes across multiple industries, including:
- Applications in high energy radiation
- Applications where wear and friction are required
- Bearing cages
- Chip nest and sockets
- Devices in high-tech machinery
- Electrical and electronic devices (high-temperature electrical connectors etc.)
