Glass Reinforced

Compression Molded Grade

Duratron T5530 PAI is 30% glass-reinforced. It ideal for higher load structural or electonic applications. This grade is similar in composition to Duratron®  T5030 PAI. It is selected for larger shapes or when the greatest degree of dimensional control is required. This grade is well suited for applications in the electrical/electronic, business equipment, aircraft and aerospace industries.

Depending upon the method used to produce a stock shape (sheet, rod, or tube), the properties of the resulting material can vary. Generally speaking, the best mechanical properties are exhibited by injection molded material. However, the process used is generally defined by the size and shape of the desired material. For example, small diameter rod and thin sheets are extruded — larger shapes are compression molded. See the following descriptions and properties table for details.

ISO 9001:2008 Certified

Torlon ® 5530 is 30% glass reinforced, compression molded PAI. It is ideal for higher load structural or electronic applications. This grade is similar in composition to Torlon ® 5030 PAI (injection molded). 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.
