Friction/Wear Material suits non-lubricated applications.

Polyamide-imide TORLON(R) 4435 PAI provides wear resistance in high-PV, 50,000 to 100,000 psi-ft/min applications. It also exhibits wear resistance in low-pressure, high-velocity conditions (125 psi and 800 ft/min) and high-pressure, low-velocity conditions (2,000 psi and 50 ft/min). Glass transition temperature allows parts to operate continuously at temperatures up to 260 deg C. Thermoplastic...
