Why Torlon?


Torlon polyamide-imide is recognized as the highest performance thermoplastic that is still melt processible. Torlon can be extruded into shapes and injection molded into custom geometries.

With a 500°F heat distortion temperature (softening temperature) and a 500°F continuous service temperature, Torlon offers unmatched strength at elevated temperatures. It is stronger at 400°F than other engineering resins at room temperature.

Why PEEK?

PEEK is recognized as having the best balance of chemical resistance, wear resistance and heat resistance among all thermoplastics. It is melt processible allowing for processing into shapes by extrusion and parts by injection molding.

Technically PEEK is part of a family of polyarylether ketones (PAEK) but the PEEK acronym is most recognized. Related chemistries based on PEK and PEKK offer unique thermal benefits to the traditional PAEK’s.
