QUADRANT INTRODUCES STEP-CHANGE PTFE FLUOROSINT® 135 FOR EXTREME CONDITIONS

12/6/2012

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (EPP) delivers a step-change in durability and longevity to seals, bearings and washers used in fluid processing with the launch of advanced Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Fluorosint® 135. The new material grade's unique combination of lowest coefficient of friction (COF), lowest coefficient of linear thermal expansion (CLTE) and lowest wear rate outperforms typical filled PTFE compounds to offer machines the best protection against wear and breakdown, even at extreme temperatures and pressures.

Machines that break down cost a company money every minute they sit idle. A broken bearing or washer can quickly erase a profit margin. With the addition of Fluorosint 135 to its line-up of high-performance PTFEs, Quadrant, the industry leader in polymer design and innovation, has responded to the market's urgent need for excellent machinability and stability.

Fluorosint 135 is engineered for superior performance and value. The new material can be used at temperatures up to 232ºC. Tests conducted indicate an advantage in CLTE, COF and deformation under load of over 30 to 50 percent. These properties provide a major improvement compared to other filled PTFEs on the market, and create significant advantage in enhancing part performance and increasing part life. The extreme chemical inertness of Fluorosint 135 protects components and reduces the risk of malfunction due to corrosive chemical attacks. This makes it ideal for chemical processing applications, as well as more general fluid processing environments.

Fluorosint 135 is designed to improve the performance of compressor piston rings, rider bands, and packing seals, used in pump, valve and compressor wear parts. Quadrant Fluorosint 135's competitive pricing allows companies to guard against expensive equipment failure and ensure maximum production, longevity and profitability. Available in a wide range of rod, tube, and sheet sizes, the new material is further evidence that Quadrant is at the forefront of plastics' innovation, engineering, and design.

Dr. Richard Campbell, Quadrant EPP's Global Materials Technology Manager, commented on the breakthrough: "Recognizing the increasing demand for increased durability and toughness, Quadrant's R&D team created a breakthrough material that outperforms typical PTFE compounds. Quadrant Fluorosint 135 was the result, and we are confident that this product will prove to be the best defense against breakdowns due to wear and tear."
