Torlon® AI for Coatings 

Torlon® AI is a family of soluble amide-imides sold in powder form. The polymer is tough, chemically resistant, and thermally stable. It has thermal capability similar to many polyimides, at a lower price. Coatings based on AI polymers have been shown to be cost-effective in electrical/electronic, high-temperature decorative, and corrosion prevention applications.

Torlon® AI-10

Torlon® AI-10 powder has an impressive record of proven performance in high-temperature coatings and adhesives. These include electrical wire coatings, corrosion-resistant coatings, non-stick cookware coatings, and industrial lowfriction coatings.

Torlon® AI-10 is soluble in dipolar aprotic solvents such as N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP), dimethyl acetamide (DMAC), dimethyl formamide (DMF) and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) to at least 35% solids. Mixtures of these solvents with other diluents are possible. Cast solutions are thermally cured up to 250-300°C (480-570°F) to achieve maximum performance properties. Please see Torlon AI-10 Coatings for more information.

Torlon® AI-10 LM

Torlon® AI-10 LM is similar to Torlon® AI-10 in that it is produced using the same monomers and polymerization system. However, the manufacturing process has been optimized to reduce the amount of residual methylene dianiline (MDA) monomer to below the 1,000 ppm action level specifi ed in various hazard communication regulations.

Torlon® AI-10 LM can be substituted for Torlon® AI-10, without any changes in formulation or process. Coatings based on the Torlon® AI-10 or AI-10 LM polymer yield durable, abrasion-resistant, thermally-stable films.
