PTFE is reinforced with 25% glass fibres. The added glass fibre improves the wear properties and, to a minor degree, also the deformation strength under load while leaving substantially unchanged the electrical and chemical characteristics. However, it is important to remember that glass, has a rather poor resistance against alkalis and is easily attacked by hydrofluoric acid. The coefficient of friction is also slightly increased.
Our Glass Filled PTFE is manufactured to ISO13000-1 The following stock shapes and sizes of Glass Filled PTFE are available to buy online - please select from:
