GENERAL DESCRIPTION

click to resize photo Duratron ® T PAI is the highest performing melt processable plastic. It has superior resistance to elevated temperatures. It is capable of performing under severe stress conditions at continuous temperatures to 500°F (260°C). Parts machined from Duratron ® T PAI stock shapes provide greater compressive strength and higher impact resistance than most advanced engineering plastics. Its extremely low coefficient of linear thermal expansion and high creep resistance deliver excellent dimensional stability over its entire use range. PAI is an amorphous material with a Tg (glass transition temperature) of 537°F (280°C).

Duratron T5530 PAI (Compression Molded)

Duratron ® T5530 is 30% glass reinforced, compression molded PAI. It is ideal for higher load structural or electronic applications. It is selected for larger shapes or when the greatest degree of dimensional control is required. Applications include burn-in sockets, gears, valve plates, impellers, rotors, terminal strips, and insulators.

Compression-molded Duratron ® T5530 is typically available only in larger diameter rods (in short lengths), thicker sheets, and large (but short length) tubes. Check with us for availability of T5530 in the size you need.
