Fluorosint: Sheets, Rods & Tubes
Fluorosint is chemically linked to PTFE but contains unique properties as a result of a proprietary process in which synthetically manufactured mica is added. This bonding results into a load carrying capability and thermal expansion rate not normally attainable in reinforced PTFE.
We offer two different formulations of Fluorosint -
Fluorosint 207 opens numerous application possibilities in food, pharmaceutical and medical industries due to the composition of the raw materials used for the production of Fluorosint 207.
Fluorosint 207 meets the requirements of the directives of the European Union and the American FDA regulations concerning plastic materials intended to come into contact with foodstuffs.
Fluorosint 500 is non-abrasive to most mating materials and has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load than unfilled PTFE. Fluorosint 500 eliminates fit and clearance problems with its coefficient of linear thermal expansion properties, approaching the expansion rate of aluminium and is 1/5 that of virgin PTFE.
- Very high max. allowable service temperature in air (250 C continuously)
- Excellent chemical and hydrolysis resistance
- Good wear resistance due to low coefficient of friction
- Very good dimensional stability
- Physiologically inert (only applies to Fluorosint 207)
- Good electrical insulating properties
- Outstanding UV and weather resistance
- Low flammability
Fluorosint Technical Notes
Due to its unique PTFE matrix, Fluorosint's physical strength characteristics are not as high as other advanced engineering plastics profiled here such as Ketron PEEK or Duratron PAI (formerly Torlon PAI). This compliance/ductility makes it ideal for seats and seals.
Labyrinth seals and shrouds
Abradable seals in turbo machinery fabricated from Fluorosint 500 tubular bar reliably perform in hostile chemical environments while providing dramatic efficiency gains. (Prior materials: Aluminium, Bronze Babbit)
Dishwasher arm bearing
These bearings made of Fluorosint 207 are produced directly to size, offer a 20 year service life, and FDA compliance (Prior material : PTFE)
Transmission and power steering seal rings
Europe's premier automobile manufacturers choose Fluorosint 500 over other filled PTFE for improved performance and service life capabilities. (Prior material : GF PTFE)
Seats fabricated from Fluorosint 207 excel in steam and hot air service due to their non permeability, excellent dimensional stability, and low wear rate. (Prior materials: PTFE, Filled PTFE)
