Product Name Notes
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...
Molded plate is available in thicknesses from 3/8ths of an inch up to four inches. Plate is inventoried in sizes from one-foot square to four feet square (sixteen square feet...
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...
Skived sheet can be made in any thickness from 15 mils up to .250 inches. Fluoro-Plastics technology makes it possible to make in-between sizes. Thickness tolerances range from .0005 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...
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...
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...
