FLUOROSINT®'s unique properties are the result of a proprietary process in which synthetically manufactured mica is chemically linked to PTFE. This bonding results into a load carrying capability and thermal expansion rate not normally attainable in reinforced PTFE. The chemical and temperature resistance inherent in PTFE are practically retained.   

Main characteristics:

  • high max. allowable service temperature in air (continuously 260°C)
  • excellent chemical and hydrolysis resistance
  • good wear resistance
  • low coefficient of friction
  • very good dimensional stability
  • physiologically inert (only applies to FLUOROSINT® 207)
  • good electrical insulating properties
  • oustanding UV and weather resistance
  • inherent low flammability

FLUOROSINT® 500 (PTFE + mica) (ivory)

FLUOROSINT® 500 has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load than unfilled PTFE (tested according to ASTM D 621; stress of 14 MPa of 50°C). Its coefficient of linear thermal expansion approaches the expansion rate of aluminium and is 1/5 that of virgin PTFE. It is considerably harder than virgin PTFE, has better wear characteristics and maintains low frictional properties. FLUOROSINT® 500 is also nonabrasive to most mating materials.

FLUOROSINT 207 (PTFE + mica) (white)

The composition of the raw material used for the production of FLUOROSINT® 207 is suited for food contact according to the EU/FDA regulations. In combination with a good mechanical performance and an inherent outstanding chemical and hydrolysis resistance, this feature opens numerous application possibilities in food, pharmaceutical and medical industries
