Fluorosint and Teflon (PTFE)
Fluorosint enhanced PTFE's unique properties are the result of a proprietary process in which synthetically manufactured mica is chemically linked to virgin PTFE. This bonding results in properties not normally attainable in reinforced PTFE. Fluorosint grades offer an excellent combination of low frictional properties and dimensional stability.
- Fluorosint 207
Fluorosint/Teflon (PTFE) • Compression Molded Grade •Natural Color
Fluorosint 207 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 virgin PTFE below 300 degreesF making it an excellent choice for aggressive service bearings and bushings.
- Fluorosint 500
Fluorosint/Teflon (PTFE) • Compression Molded Grade •Ivory Color
Fluorosint 500 PTFE 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 1/3 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 HPV
Fluorosint/Teflon (PTFE) • Compression Molded Grade •Tan Color
FDA compliant Fluorosint HPV PTFE is a high performance bearing grade of Fluorosint - optimized for high PV and very low "K" or wear factor. Fluorosint HPV PTFE was developed for bearing applications where other, low-tech PTFE formulations exhibit premature wear or simply cannot perform. FDA compliance gives food and pharmaceutical equipment manufacturers new design options and all benefit from its excellent load bearing and wear characteristics.
Fluorosint/Teflon (PTFE) • Compression Molded Grade •
The chemical structure of fluoropolymers (also called fluoroplastics) primarily consists of carbon and fluorine. The particular combination of these two chemical elements arranged along the molecular chain imparts a unique set of properties to these types of carbon - fluorine based polymers. PTFE is a fully fluorinated polymer available in various unmodified and modified grades. PTFE tubing is processed by compacting the powder under pressure at ambient or slightly higher than ambient temperatures. Methods of forming products include paste extrusion, ram extrusion, molding and calendaring between rolls. Many formed PTFE products are consolidated by sintering in an oven or used in unsintered form ( eg: thread sealant tape). Paste extrusion and calendaring methods are used with fine powder PTFE resins while granular PTFE resins are processed by ram extrusion and molding.
