Good UV resistance
Cutting (turning, milling, drilling, sawing): hard metal, diamond can be used only in sharp design. Cooling is recommended, which allows high cutting rates, e. g. v = 250-500 m/min for turning and milling, v = 10 –30 m/min for drilling.
Adhesive bonding: feasible.
Unfilled, natural polyamide-imide (PAI) having the best toughness among PAI products. Due to low heat expansion often used as precision part material at elevated temperatures. (upt to 250° C). Good electrical insulator.
Improved sliding behaviour and wear reisitance due to 20% graphite and 3% PTFE additives. Excellent balance of mechanical properties and wear resistance for more demanding applications.
12% graphite and 3% PTFE are the main additives on natural PAI matrix. Preliminary material of tribological applications in wide temperature range.
It contains 30% glass fibre. Due to the reinforcement it has better dimension stability, higher stiffness, E modulus comparing to other PAI versions.
Due to 30 % carbon fibre reinforcement it has better dimensional stability, stiffness, mechanical load carrying capacity.
