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 has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load than unfilled PTFE. Its coefficient of linear thermal expansion approaches the expansion rate of aluminium and is 1/4 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 enhanced PTFE offers an ideal combination of stability and wear resistance for sealing applications where tight dimensional control is required.
