Virgin PTFE are frequently compounded with specific fillers such as; Glass Fibers, Bronze Powder, Carbon Fibers and ect., to add strength and enhance the mechanical properties to fulfil the customer’s specific requirements.
Carbon is one of the best fillers for chemical use. 25% Carbon is added into the virgin PTFE. This improves the compressive strength, making it more resistant to wear, increases the thermal conductivity and makes the material electrically conductive. Carbon is less abrasive than glass. Carbon-Filled PTFE is developed for its mechanical properties.
Carbon filled PTFE is available in:
