TorlonŽ polyamide-imide (PAI) has the highest strength and stiffness of any thermoplastic up to 275°C (525°F). It has outstanding resistance to wear, creep, and chemicals— including strong acids and most organics—and is ideally suited for severe service environments.
As taken from this website....

The reason for using those check ***** is that they are lighter and much less abusive than the Steel ***** used by the factory. It is not unusual for the steel ***** to hammer their way through the valve body plate over time.

Hope that helps.
