Carbon Teflon Bars (PTFE)
PTFE Carbon Teflon Sheet sheet and Rod
filled with other ingredients such as graphite bronze glass and carbon.
Each has its own advantages Graphite filled PTFE has exceptional chemical resistance and is compatible with most hydraulic fluids.
Outstanding performance when used for pneumatic hydraulic type compression rods and piston band bearing pads and rotary applications. The coefficient of friction is low compared to other filled PTFE materials.
Higher flexural and surface modulus than modified PTFE hardness. This Bronze filled PTFE filler has clothing that has better creep resistance and higher thermal conductivity than glass fibers with PTFE
This compound is easy to machine but has poor chemical resistance in the presence of acids and alkalis.
Useful in applications that experience high mechanical loads or high-speed rubbing contacts where bronze fillers supply strength and conductivity to transport unwanted excess heat.
Carbon filled PTFE with different filler percentages will change properties. The two basic ingredients used in this compound are themselves very questionable.
PTFE has good friction properties including low wear and good elasticity.
Carbon fillers are fragile and have low wear properties.
Both fail at high loads and increase in speed.
When both elements are formulated and properly mixed together they become excellent materials for use as seals and rings in the reciprocating industrial compressor.
Properties increase several hundred times
. Wear resistance changes dramatically compared to virgin PTFE.
The type and percentage of carbon is very important for material performance.
For the optimal wear properties the percentage of fillers is also important.
Lower percentages are easier for machines but do not perform well in service.
Glass filled PTFE Fiber glass has the least effect on chemical and electrical properties and adds greatly to the filled mechanical properties of PTFE.
In addition to glass, it increases the compressive properties by 40 and greatly increases wear resistance.
\ This compound rejects acids and oxidation but can be attacked by alkalis.
It is heat resistant and has better mechanical properties than standard PTFE
