Torlon® is a high-performance, non-crystalline engineering thermoplastic that provides reliable strength and performance at high temperatures. Its unique combination of properties makes it ideal for the most extreme and punishing environments, such as racecar engines and NASA’s space shuttles. At Reading Plastic, we have an excellent track record of producing precision parts that hold tight tolerances from the most advanced engineering plastics. When it comes to machining Torlon®, we have the technical and manufacturing expertise to machine and fabricate custom Torlon® parts to your exact specifications.
As a polyamide-imide (PAI), Torlon® is the highest-performing melt-processable plastic and is ideal for applications that require strength and stiffness at extreme temperatures. Parts machined from Torlon® can outperform most advanced engineering plastics by a wide margin. Torlon® is extremely durable and offers excellent wear and impact resistance. Certain glass-reinforced and carbon-fiber-reinforced grades can further improve stiffness while also advancing thermal expansion properties. Other key properties of Torlon® include:
