The highest strength and stiffness of any commercial thermoplastic at extremely high temperature and stress
High-strength grades of Torlon® PAI exhibit metal-like performance and are routinely specified for precision components used in repetitive-use, load-bearing operations. Glass-fiber and carbon-fiber-filled grades retain their strength and stiffness at high temperature with the added benefit of low creep and excellent fatigue resistance.
