A glass filled PTFE compound that is a blend of virgin PTFE and a red glass filler.
The primary filler is a short fiber glass added to increase wear resistance and compressive strength while maintaining a low coefficient of friction and resistance to corrosion. The addition of glass has a minimal effect on the electrical properties of virgin grade PTFE.
Specific Gravity: 2.15-2.18
Tensile Strength: 2600-3100 psi
Note: The property data offered represents average values obtained on laboratory test samples. Values listed are high limits. Properties may vary based upon processing technique. Data should be used only as a guide in selecting the appropriate compound.
Actual field performance will be affected by processing methodsas well as end use service conditions.
