Few plastics can match Torlon plastic in strength and stiffness at extreme temperatures. The superiority of Torlon over other plastics is significant; parts machined from Torlon stock shapes outperform most advanced engineering plastics by a large margin.
A high-performance, non-crystalline engineering thermoplastic, Torlon is a polyamide-imide (PAI) and the highest-performing melt-processable plastic. If your application demands reliable strength and performance at high temps, this material could be the solution to your design problems.
Reading Plastic machines the most advanced engineering plastics for private and government clients around the world. In this blog, learn about the properties that make Torlon plastic ideal for aerospace, military and electronics applications.
Taken together, these properties mean Torlon outperforms polyethersulfone, polyetherimide, polyphenylene sulfide, and polyetheretherketone in applications that require high temperature resistance, stiffness and strength.
That’s why you’ll find Torlon solving the most extreme problems: in NASA’s space shuttles, racecar engines, and other punishing environments.
If you’re making an investment in Torlon plastic, go with the precision plastic machining company with a track record of excellence working with such advanced materials.

For commercial airlines and military aircraft alike, finding ways to reduce maintenance costs is high priority. Aircraft parts repair is costly in both part cost and down time. The aerospace industry is increasingly turning to 3D printing to shorten lead time on parts, lower costs, and improve the quality of repairs. However, 3D-printed parts often […]Read More »
