Fluoro-Plastics, Inc. Datasheets for Polymers and Plastic Resins

Polymers and plastic materials are organic, synthetic or processed polymers that are supplied as raw materials. They typically consist of thermoplastic or thermosetting resins in the form of pellets, powders or liquid resins. These materials can then be molded into a variety of shapes for a wide range of uses.

Glass-Moly-filled PTFE Adds to hardness and stiffness Reduces friction, especially starting coefficient of friction and steady-state wear Effect on electrical properties is negligible Unreactive chemically, and dissolves only in strong oxidizing acids...
Graphite-filled PTFE Crystalline modification of high purity carbon Excellent wear properties, particularly against soft metals High load-carrying capability in high speed contact applications Chemically inert Frequently used with other filler, e.g. carbon...
Stainless Steel-filled PTFE Extremely stiff and hard High loading percentage (50% generally) Available in molded sheet only
Bronze-filled PTFE High percentage of bronze powder (40-60%) yields high thermal conductivity and better creep resistance Often used in hydraulic systems, particularly superb as linear bearings, e.g. slides, gibs, guide ways Not...
Polyimide-filled PTFE Low Friction Extremely low wear Increased hardness Operates well against soft mating surfaces like aluminum, mild steel, brass and plastics Ideal for stop-start applications to eliminate stick-slip Compare this product...
Carbon Fiber-filled PTFE Lower deformation under load Higher compressive and flex modulus and increased hardness Chemically inert–can be used in strong alkali and in HF, where glass reinforced compounds fail Good initial wear...
Glass-filled Compounded PTFE Most widely used filler in various percentages (5%, 10%, 15% and 25%) Improves creep resistance, both at low and high temperatures Chemically stable (except for strong alkalis and hydrofluoric acid...
Mineral-filled PTFE PTFE with FDA compliant filler For food processing and pharmaceutical bearing applications Compatible with a wide variety of mating surfaces, both soft (e.g. mild steel) and harder surfaces Compare this...
