Fluorosint® 207 PTFE is the lowest coefficient of friction of fluorosint grades. Fluorosint® 207 PTFE ‘s unmatched dimensional stability, excellent creep resistance and white color uniquely position this material to serve FDA regulated applications. It is non-permeable in steam and complies with the FDA’s regulation 21 CFR 175.300. Its relative wear rate is 1/20 the rate of virgin PTFE below 300°F (150°C) making it an excellent choice for aggressive service bearings and bushings.
Fluorosint enhanced PTFE’s unique properties are the result of a proprietary process in which synthetically manufactured mica is chemically linked to virgin PTFE. This bonding results in properties not normally attainable in reinforced PTFE. Fluorosint grades offer an excellent combination of low frictional properties and dimensional stability.
Advantages of Fluorosint® 207 PTFE:
- Continuous use temperatures to 500°F (260°C)
- Higher load carrying capability
- 1/9 of the deformation under load
- Lower coefficient of thermal expansion
