Arlon® 1555 is a lubricated and carbon-filled version of Arlon 1000. Compounding these thermoplastics results in a high HDT, improved tensile and flexural properties at elevated temperatures, and a reduced coefficient of thermal expansion.
The reduced coefficient of friction and improved wear properties demonstrate improved tribological properties. Arlon 1555 is most often used in nonlubricated or marginally-lubricated bearing applications or wear surfaces.
Arlon 1555 is available in basic shapes, custom molding and fabricated components.
