Fluorosint 500 | Plastic Stockist
Plastic Stockist provides an excellent range of Fluorosint 500
advanced seals at amazing prices. Fluorosint's unique properties
are the result of a proprietary process in which synthetically manufactured
mica is chemically linked to PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). This bonding
results into a load carrying capability and thermal expansion rate not
normally attainable in reinforced PTFE. The chemical and temperature
resistance inherent in PTFE are practically retained.
Fluorosint 500 has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load
than unfilled PTFE (test according to ASTM D 621, stress of 14 MPa of 50°C).
Its coefficient of linear thermal expansion approaches the expansion rate of
aluminium and is 1/5 that of virgin PTFE. It is considerably harder than
virgin PTFE, has better wear characteristics and maintains low frictional
properties. Fluorosint 500 is also non-abrasive to most
Common uses for Fluorosint
Fluorosint 500 is commonly used for labyrinth and shroud
seals. Seals are made from aluminium, bronze or Babbit caused mating part
wear that decreased the efficiency of turbo compressors. Redesigned
abradable seals machined from Fluorosint 500 tube dramatically improved
efficiency and helped protect other parts from damage. Fluorosint's
excellent chemical resistance and forgiving composition can greatly improve
the performance of rotating equipment while dealing with shaft movement and
pressure changes that can damage metallic seals.
