Torlon Plastic: Ideal for Strength & Stiffness at High Temps

Torlon plastic

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.

Why Torlon for Your Plastic Parts?

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.
