Alro Plastics Product: FLUOROSINT® Family


Fluorosint's unique properties are the result of a proprietary process in which synthetically manufactured mica is chemically linked to PTFE. This bonding results in properties not normally attainable in reinforced PTFE. Fluorosint grades offer an excellent combination of low frictional properties and dimensional stability.

Quadrant EPP developed the Fluorosint range of enhanced PTFE materials to fill the performance gaps where unfilled and low-tech, filled PTFE based polymers underperform. Each Fluorosint material was specifically developed to excel in demanding bearing and seal applications. While each of these materials possess the chemical resistance and compliance of PTFE, each material offers some special benefits that give the designer clear performance advantages.

Fluorosint® 207's unmatched dimensional stability, excellent creep resistance and white color uniquely position this material to serve FDA regulated applications. It is non-permeable in steam and complies with the FDA's regulation 21 CFR 175.300. Its relative wear rate is 1/20 the rate of PTFE below 300°F (150°C).

Available colors: White and Light Gray.

Fluorosint® 500 has nine times greater resistance to deformation under load than unfilled PTFE. Its coefficient of linear thermal expansion approaches the expansion rate of aluminum and is 1/5 that of PTFE-often eliminating fit and clearance problems. It is 1/3 harder than PTFE, has better wear characteristics and maintains low frictional properties. Fluorosint 500 is also non-abrasive to most mating materials.

Available colors: Light Tan and Gray.

Fluorosint® HPV is a high performance bearing grade of Fluorosint® - optimized for high PV and very low "K", or wear factor. Fluorosint® HPV was developed for bearing applications where other, low-tech PTFE formulations exhibit premature wear or simply cannot perform. FDA compliance gives food and pharmaceutical equipment manufacturers new design options and all benefit from its excellent load bearing and wear characteristics.

Available colors: Light Tan and Gray.

Fluorosint® MT-01 is an extreme service grade developed specifically for applications where the benefits of PTFE-based materials also require strength, stiffness and stability. Fluorosint® MTR-01 delivers high mechanical performance at elevated temperature and as a result is often specified in seat, seal and wear applicstions where extreme conditions are present.

Available colors: Dark Gray.
