Torlon®/Computer Data Server Components

China Array manufactures internal components for computer data servers made from Torlon: Polyamide-imide (PAI), an ultra high heat polymer with the highest strength and stiffness of any thermoplastic up to 275°C (525°F).

The exponential growth in server capacities (56 Terabytes on the latest IBM servers) create heat dissipation issues with more transistors being packed into the same size space.

Heat within certain areas of the server chassis can reach levels in excess of 200° C. With thermal expansion characteristics similar to steel, Torlon will not distort, warp or fatigue at these elevated temperatures.

Torlon components maintains dimensional integrity, resist wear and creep, and are non-conductive making them ideal for server applications.
