Metal-like performance from a light weight plastic
- Exceptional strength and stiffness up to 275°C (525°F)
- Outstanding wear resistance
- Superior toughness from cryogenic up to 275°C
- Resistant to strong acids and most organics
- Inherent flame resistance
- Metal-like coefficient of linear thermal expansion
Polyamide-imide threaded rods or Torlon® threaded rods are one of the strongest and toughest polymer threaded rods available. Having the highest strength and stiffness of any pure thermoplastic up to 275°C (525°F), Torlon threaded rods are geared for the most demanding mechanical and high temperature applications. Torlon threaded rods also have outstanding resistance to wear, creep and most chemicals.
Torlon threaded rods are available in a glass fiber reinforced grade which improves the strength, modulus and creep resistance. Because of the outstanding mechanical properties of Torlon threaded rods, they can be used as a replacement for metal threaded rods some applications.
Torlon threaded rods are available in both metric and standard sizes. Please contact us if you have any questions about Torlon threaded rods, their characteristics and their availability.
threaded rods made from customer specified polyamide-imide grades are available upon request.
