Torlon

Torlon® PolyAmide-Imide is a high performance amorphous thermoplastic. The amide-imide combination gives this polymer exceptional thermal stability, high strength, and broad chemical resistance. Torlon is the best melt-processable plastic with exceptional thermal and chemical properties. It shows good resistance to wear and creep and performs well even under severe stress conditions at high temperatures. Torlon offers higher compressive strength, better dimensional stability, and high impact resistance than most advanced engineering plastics. It has low flammability and smoke generation and widely used in applications where flammability is a critical consideration.
