Product Name Notes
Because of its unique molecular structure, granular PTFE does not melt. It cannot be molded into complex forms like other plastics. However, it is easily machined on all standard equipment,...
Film is available in thicknesses from one mil (.001") up to 20 mils (.020"). Because Fluoro-Plastics uses the most modern skiving technology in the world, interim thicknesses are available; widths...
Fluoro-Plastics/Surf Technologies stocks standard guide rail shapes: cover bar, chain guide, snap-ons, half rounds, and j legs in various sizes for applications where temperatures exceed 180 deg. F. All shapes...
PTFE can be etched with a sodium ammonia or sodium naphthalene etch so that its surface is chemically modified for adhesion to various substrates using ordinary commercial grade epoxies. When...
Surf Technologies is a leader in the manufacture of heavy walled PTFE tube, both in standard inch sizes and in AWG sizes. Tube is used in fluid handling applications for...
Anti-Static PTFE - Amorphous Carbon powder additive Increased hardness Increased thermal conductivity Adds to creep resistance Excellent wear properties when combined with graphite; carbon/graphite compounds preferred for non-lubricated piston rings...
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...
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...
Extremely stiff and hard High loading percentage (50% generally) Available in molded sheet only
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...
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...
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...
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...
