Solvay TORLON Pai makes composite cleaning tools more durable and safer
on March 12, 2019, Shanghai, China - Solvay announced that performance plastic selected its TORLON Pai material as the material of the new series of endurosharp scrapers. This series is mainly used to remove hard substances on the surface of fragile fiber-reinforced composites. Performance plastics' latest products include gap cleaning knives, caulking material removal drills and discs, as well as adhesive cutters and reamers. All new endurosharp products use Solvay's high-performance TORLON 5030 Pai (polyamide imide) - 30 Jinan gold assay drop tester instructions% glass fiber reinforced resin
"in order to remove the residual materials, sealants and adhesives from the cracks on the aircraft surface, maintenance personnel have to choose between dangerous metal knives and polymer knives whose edges cannot be kept sharp for a long time," pointed out rich reed, vice president of marketing of performance plastics: "The unique performance of Solvay TORLON Pai gives excellent consideration to the advantages of two types of materials, which can be as sharp as metal and will not damage the surface of vulnerable composites."
if other high-performance polymers such as polyethyleneimide (PEI) and polyether ether ketone (PEEK) are used to make scraper blades, it is necessary to carry out secondary processing on the formed blanks to grind them into sharp blades. Relatively speaking, TORLON Pai is easy to process, making endurosharp tools have sharp edges when coming out of the mold. At the same time, materials can also be machined to meet special design requirements. TORLON Pai's excellent thermal stability makes it able to withstand the high temperature and friction during the regrinding process. Peek and Pei materials will produce burrs under the same conditions. In addition, TORLON Pai also has excellent resistance to aviation working fluids and solvents, which helps to ensure the long service life of endurosharp tools
endurosharp's latest knife handle, knife handle and built-in parts can ensure aviation maintenance personnel to safely remove elastic coatings, protective covers, tapes, sealants, adhesives, caulking materials and tape residues on fiber-reinforced composites, plastic, glass, ceramic or metal substrates and fasteners. Endurosharp tools can also be used to assist in heating and chemical scraping processes to speed up material removal
"TORLON Pai is highly praised for its combination of thermosetting properties and easy processing properties of thermoplastic. Through cooperation with performance plastics, it has further achieved its metal sharp and durable blade," said senior vice president of Solvay polymers global business unit Doug brademeyer, head of the ultra-high performance polymer business department, said: "the innovation level and processing ability represented by endurosharp tools have inspired people to realize the application of high-performance polymers."
