Polyamide-Imide Washers / Torlon Washers
Polyamide-imide washers or Torlon® washers are one of the strongest and toughest polymer washers available. Having the highest strength and stiffness of any thermoplastic up to 275°C (525°F), Torlon® washers are geared for the most demanding mechanical applications. Torlon® washers also have outstanding resistance to wear, creep and most chemicals.
Torlon® washers are available in a glass fiber reinforced grade which improves the strength, modulus and creep resistance. The mechanical properties of these Torlon® washers are so outstanding, it makes them a candidate for the replacement of metal fasteners.
Torlon® washers are available in both metric and standard sizes. Please contact us if you have any questions about Torlon® washers, their characteristics and their availability.
Fasteners made from customer specified polyamide-imide grades are available upon request.
