Fluorosint enhanced PTFE's unique properties are the result of a proprietary process in which synthetically manufactured mica is chemically linked to virgin PTFE. This bonding results in properties not normally attainable in reinforced PTFE. Fluorosint grades offer an excellent combination of low frictional properties and dimensional stability.
Fluorosint® PTFE-Based Bearing Materials from Quadrant include:
Fluorosint 207, Fluorosint 500, Fluorosint HPV, Fluorosint MT-01 and Fluorosint 135.
