Torlon® AI-10 LS is a polyamide-imide (PAI) powder developed for the performance coatings industry. It is similar to Torlon® AI-10 in that it is produced using the same monomers and polymerization system. However, the manufacturing process has been optimized to reduce the amount of residual methylene dianiline (MDA) monomer to below the 1000 ppm action level specified in various hazard communication regulations and the residual N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) is less than 1.5%. 
Torlon® AI-10 LS can be substituted for Torlon® AI-10, without any changes in formulation or process. Coatings based on the Torlon® AI-10 or AI-10 LS polymer yield durable, abrasion resistant, thermally stable films. The resin has superior resistance to organic solvents and a wide array of other commercial and industrial chemicals.
