PTFE rods are made of soft, nontoxic fluoropolymer (also known as Teflon®, which is a registered trademark of DuPont) with an extremely low coefficient of friction, meaning that few materials stick to it, and most that do stick can be peeled or rubbed off. PTFE rods have has outstanding chemical and weathering resistance.
PTFE rods are made of material insoluble in most organics and has excellent electrical properties. It remains stable at both cryogenic and elevated temperatures (from -200° C up to 260° C),
PTFE rods (Extruded)
PTFE rod has excellent resistance to most chemicals and solvents and is capable of operating at high and low temperatures - up to 260°C. The PTFE rods also have a very low coefficient of friction and are commonly used in food contact applications. Rods of PTFE provides good thermal stability and has good electrical properties, but are not suitable for wear application and is difficult to bond.
Extremely high chemical resistance
PTFE 25% Carbon Filled Black Rod
is a high performance, synthetic fluoropolymer with the carbon fibre greatly improving by a notable margin characteristics including electrical properties, deformation strength and wear and abrasion resistance.
Carbon is a brittle material itself, having poor wear properties and mechanical strength. The resulting material after the mixture of PTFE and carbon fibers, however, has excellent mechanical and wear properties. Carbon Filled PT..
PTFE Glass + Graphite filled rods
These rods are made of Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) filled with glass / graphite. The mixture of both fillers allows resistance against soft metals a creates a chemically inert alloy with outstanding wear characteristics.
At both sides of the temperature scale - both for high and low temperatures, deformation under stress is also decreased. The PTFE Glass and graphite filled rods are an outstanding self-lubricating bearing materia..
PTFE glass filled rods
PTFE 25% Glass Filled White Rod is a high performance, synthetic fluoropolymer with the glass fibre greatly improving characteristics including mechanical strength, wear resistance and compressive properties by as much as 40%.
The long term service temperature range of PTFE Rod is from -200°C to 260°C and has a short term maximum service temperature of 300°C.
These PTFE rods are reinforced with 25% glass fibres. The added glass fibre improves..
PTFE graphite filled rods
EXTRUDED PTFE TEFLON GRAPHITE ROD has good thermal conductivity, is Chemically inert, Low friction. Minimum wear to mating surface. Graphite has good chemical resistance to corrosive environments and exhibits good initial wear and rubbing/sliding characteristics in dry and water applications. Commonly blended with carbon and PTFE.
The Filled Grade PTFE TEFLON products are widely used as machining stock for all kinds of chemical, electrical and ..
PTFE rods - Ceramic filled
Ceramic filled PTFE rods - type BL are made of a distinctive, mechanically stressed Ceramic filled PTFE compound with elastic behaviour and properties.
The ceramic filled PTFE has low heat conductivity and chemical inertia of the alloyed metal. It has outstanding tribological friction and wear characteristics compared to the glass filled PTFE, with reduced permeation producing less abrasive wear.
Do not use in for food applications.
PTFE rods with PFA
PTFE filled with PFA rods are made of chemical-modified polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) which fills the gap between conventional PTFE and melt-processable PFA and extends our product range.
By changing the polymer chain, several characteristics of traditional PTFE have been enhanced.
Key benefits: Excellent weldability Low load distortion
Applications: Seals Welded parts Gaskets Encapsulated metal inserts Bearing pads
