At even the highest temperatures, Torlon maintains its toughness.
From temperatures of 500°F to chemically harsh environments, Torlon outperforms similar materials in a broad range of applications. This melt-processible plastic offers exceptional toughness, stiffness and strength and is both impact resistant and extremely durable. Available at a lower cost than many advanced engineering plastics, Torlon can be machined to tight tolerances, extruded and compression molded.
