Fluorosint 500 has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load than unfilled PTFE (tested according to ASTM D 621; stress of 14 MPa at 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 mating materials.
