Exceptional Dimensional Stability for Precise Tolerance Control
Reinforced with a proprietary synthetic mica, this material exhibits, in addition to its inherent outstanding chemical and hydrolysis resistance, very good mechanical and tribological properties.
Fluorosint 500 PTFE (colour: ivory) has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load than unfilled PTFE. Its coefficient of linear thermal expansion approaches the expansion rate of aluminum and is 1/5 that of virgin PTFE, often eliminating fit and clearance problems. It is considerably harder than virgin PTFE, has better wear characteristics and maintains low frictional properties. Fluorosint 500 PTFE is also non-abrasive to most mating materials.
