Polyester Resin | Ekonol®

Supplier: E-Plas

EkonolĀ® polyester resin is a wholly aromatic polyester resin and when combined with P.T.F.E, it produces a composite material that has excellent temperature stability and wear resistance.

Price Guide: POA

This blend will not wear metal surfaces, particularly brass and aluminium and it resists self -wear better than any other P.T.F.E blended material.

Excellent solvent resistance with the exception of concentrated sulphuric acid and strong alkalis. Outstanding wear resistance and self-lubricating properties combined with a very low thermal expansion make this a unique filled grade of P.T.F.E.

By comparison with virgin unfilled P.T.F.E Ekonol® can be characterised by the following properties:

  • Very low creep
  • Increased stiffness and hardness
  • Very low elongation
  • Extremely low coefficient of friction
  • Very high Pressure - Velocity limit
  • Very good chemical resistance
  • High dimensional stability
  • Corrosion resistant
  • High thermal transfer
  • FDA approved of direct contact with food

Fields of application:

Compressor rings, "O" rings, spring-loaded seals, continuous rings, piston rings, self-lubricating bearings, rotors or vanes of process pumps, electronics parts requiring high thermal transfer, slide bearings, bushes.
