PAI

Polyamideimide

PAI is used relatively rarely as it is difficult to process, but PAI has many applications due to its high thermal strength: 50 MPa at 260 ° C.

PAI with lubricant is used for bearings, bushings, valves, etc.

Trade names of raw materials and semi-finished products:

  • Torlon®
  • Tecator™
  • Semitron®
  • Duratron®

Linatex supplies both semi-finished and finished products, as required. Documentation for quality and short delivery times makes Linatex a good partner.

What is PAI used for

Application temperature normally up to approx. C 260 ° C.
Density usually approx. 1.38-1.46 g/cmᶟ

Advantages:

  • Withstand high temperatures (260 ° C)
  • Only 4% of the tension is lost after 2000 hours at 200 ° C
  • UL index 220 ° C
  • Extremely low friction and wear in the qualities filled with teflon or graphite
  • Extremely low heat expansion
  • Chemical Resistant

Limitations:

Extremely difficult to spray.

Attacked by hot alkalis and acids.

Low moisture absorption.

Not food approved.

Attacked by overheated steam at 160 ° C.

Applications:

Wear parts in bearings, seals, valves, rent houses etc.

Especially seals exposed to high temperatures and valve parts that are exposed to high pressure and chemical influences.
