Teflon PTFE is a mixture of 25% glass (PTFE glass or PTFE + 25% Glass) reinforced for high creep resistance in all temperature ranges. Suitable for all types of valve seals and washers in pressure tolerant conditions.
Teflon glass (PTFE + Glass) has a modified coating resistance and due to the insulation of glass fibers has little effect on its electrical properties. Teflon glass 25% (PTFE glass or PTFE + 25% Glass) has excellent water resistance.
The presence of glass fibers increases the anti-wear properties and also provides greater strength against deformation when applying pressure. These changes while the electrical and chemical properties of Teflon (PTFE) remain unchanged. This product also has a higher coefficient of friction. Of course, glass has poor resistance to alkalis.
However, Teflon mixed with 25% glass is not suitable for applications that require resistance to bases and hydrofluoric acid and should be avoided in these applications.
- Teflon glass is ideal for applications that require high pressure tolerance against hard surfaces, and its main applications are bearings, gaskets and seat valves.
Teflon PTFE mixed with 25% glass is produced and supplied in the form of SHEETS, RODS and TUBES in different dimensions and sizes.
