Fluorosint® HPV PTFE

Fluorosint® HPV PTFE is a high-performance bearing grade of Fluorosint – optimized for high PV and very low “K” or wear factor. Fluorosint HPV PTFE was developed for bearing applications where other, low-tech PTFE formulations exhibit premature wear or simply cannot perform. Fluorosint® HPV PTFE is FDA compliant. FDA compliance gives food and pharmaceutical equipment manufacturers new design options and all benefit from its excellent load bearing and wear characteristics.

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® HPV PTFE:

  • Optimized for high PV and low wear factor
  • FDA compliant
  • 9x greater resistance to deformation under load thank unfilled PTFE
  • Eliminates fit and clearance problems
  • 1/3 harder than virgin PTFE
  • Better wear characteristics
  • Maintains low frictional properties
  • Non-abrasive to most mating materials

Applications:

  • Bearing applications
