Fluorosint® 500 PTFE
Exceptional Dimensional Stability for Precise Tolerance Control
Reinforced with a proprietary synthetic mica, this material exhibits, in addition to its inherent outstanding chemical and hydrolysis resistance, very good mechanical and tribological properties.
Fluorosint 500 PTFE (colour: ivory) has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load than unfilled PTFE. Its coefficient of linear thermal expansion approaches the expansion rate of aluminum and is 1/5 that of virgin PTFE, often eliminating fit and clearance problems. It is considerably harder than virgin PTFE, has better wear characteristics and maintains low frictional properties. Fluorosint 500 PTFE is also non-abrasive to most mating materials.
Fluorosint® 207 PTFE
Lowest Coefficient of Friction of Fluorosint Grades
Fluorosint® 207 (colour: white) PTFE’s unmatched dimensional stability, excellent creep resistance and white color uniquely position this material to serve FDA regulated applications. It is non-permeable in steam and complies with the FDA’s regulation 21 CFR 175.300. Its relative wear rate is 1/20 the rate of PTFE below 150 °C / 300 °F making it an excellent choice for aggressive service bearings and bushings.
