Performance Plastics thermoplastic injection molding

we work with highly engineered Torlon Polyamidimide (PAI)

We have an extensive history of injection molding filled and unfilled ultra and high performance thermoplastics resins (PEEK, PFA, FEP, Torlon®, Ultem®, EXTEM®, etc.), and partnering with world class polymer scientists and industry leading material suppliers to develop unique custom resin formulations to address our customers needs. This page highlights a few of the materials we commonly injection mold.

An early member of the high performance plastics family, PAI is a high strength, high temperature (500°F max) polymer that is injection molded and oven “cured” to produce a thermoset polymer with excellent bearing properties. PAI has the highest tensile strength of all non-filled, injection moldable materials. It should be noted that water absorption can be a concern and a 17 day post cure process is required. Use of this material requires special certification which we have obtained.

  • Low friction/wear
  • High compressive strength
  • Outstanding performance at elevated temperatures.
