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.
