|Sheets, Rods, Tubes, Plates|
PTFE is truly a unique material and still the most widely used of all the fluoropolymers. PTFE has a combination of chemical, electrical and thermal performance unmatched by any other commercially available material.
PTFE is available in sheets, rods, tubes and plates; as well as various different grades. Other forms of PTFE available include: Mica filled, glass filled, electrical sleeving and Skived Tapes.
PTFE sheet and tape can be given an etched surface suitable for adhesive bonding.
PTFE filled grades offer a range of materials that expand on the properties of PTFE
Improved material properties can be achieved by the addition of selected fillers. These fillers extend performance characteristics and allow for wider application - particularly in demanding thermal stability and load support situations. In addition, the frictional and thermal properties of PTFE remain generally unaffected.
The glass-filled PTFE grades, GL25 and GLI5, show improved wear and creep resistance compared with unfilled PTFE, while the chemical resistance is virtually unaffected. B60, a bronze filled compound, has a high thermal conductivity resulting in excellent bearing properties at high speeds, particularly where unhardened shafts are used. BM555, a PTFE containing bronze and MoS2, has been designed for low friction, low wear applications such as piston rings and bearings.
