A PTFE compound that is a blend of virgin PTFE and glass fiber & carbon fillers.
The primary fillers are added to increase resistance to deformation under load. Permanent deformation will be reduced to one half that of virgin PTFE.
The addition of these fillers will also reduce bearing wear by a factor of 1000 in comparison with virgin grade PTFE.
Specific Gravity: 2.15-2.18
Tensile Strength: 2300-2800 psi
