Fluorosint Overview

The products 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.

Fluorosint 207

The composition of the raw materials used for the production of FLUOROSINT 207 meets the requirements of the directives of the European Union and the American FDA regulations concerning plastic materials intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. In combination with the good mechanical performance of FLUOROSINT and its inherent outstanding chemical and hydrolysis resistance, this feature opens numerous application possibilities in food, pharmaceutical and medical industries **.

Fluorosint 500

FLUOROSINT 500 has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load than unfilled PTFE (tested according to ASTM D 621; stress of 14 MPa at 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 non-abrasive to most mating materials.
