Key Features

  • 25% glass-filled PTFE provides many of the same features as standard PTFE, including a low-friction surface and resistance to high temperatures, but with increased wear resistance and dimensional stability
  • Glass-filled PTFE generally withstands higher temperatures than other fluoropolymers, such as FEP and ETFE
  • Color is green

Product Description

The 25% glass-filled PTFE round rod has a green color. The 25% glass-filled PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) provides many of the same features as standard PTFE, including a low-friction surface that does not bond readily with other materials and resistance to high temperatures, but with increased wear resistance and dimensional stability due to the glass filling. This material shares many of the same properties as other fluoropolymers, but generally withstands higher temperatures than FEP and ETFE. Glass-filled PTFE also provides good resistance to chemicals except for alkalis and hydrofluoric acid.

Plastic refers to a group of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that have been engineered to achieve specific properties. The most notable characteristics of plastics are its low weight, machinability, corrosion resistance, and typically good thermal and electrical insulating properties. Certain plastic grades also offer optical transparency similar to glass, low-friction or self-lubricating surfaces, and exceptional impact resistance. Depending on their properties, certain plastic grades can be used as alternatives to metal, glass, and ceramic. Unlike metal, plastic may experience creep, which is deformation caused by longtime exposure to a constant load.

Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Impact resistance is the measure of a material’s ability to absorb a shock of energy before breaking.
