Torlon® 5530 (30% glass-filled polyamide-imide) is Quadrant's compression-molded version of Solvay Torlon 5030 PAI injection-molding resin. The compression-molding process creates a random dispersement of the glass fibres which in-turn allows for tremendous dimensional stability in all directions (as compared to unidirectional glass-fibre flow created through injection-molding and extrusion. In addition to strength and dimensional stability, Torlon® 5530 is electrically insulative with a surface resistivity of > 1013 Ohms/sq. It has exceptional dielectric strength- over 800-volt/ mil. It offers best- in- class radiation resistance, withstanding exposure to 10 x 9th rads*. Close tolerance components are produced from Torlon 5530 including IC Test Sockets, Handlers & Nests welding tip insulators, CVT clutch rollers, fasteners, igniter cups & cases, gears, splines, hydraulic poppets and many other structural and dynamic components.
