Taking a Closer Look at Fluorosint® Materials
What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Fluorosint 207?
When it comes to temperature and pressure resistance Fluorosint® 207C falls between TIVAR® and Duratron® materials. It offers very good wear resistance and Fluorosint® 207 has a very low coefficient of friction.
Where this material really shines is in two areas. It works successfully where virgin PTFE may not. Even more importantly this material is FDA compliant so it’s excellent for food service applications. Basically if you need a seal or gasket material that is temperature resistant, chemical resistant, and FDA compliant Fluorosint® 207 is a great option. In addition this material has been shown to last longer than unfilled PTFE’s in wear applications and it works well against most mating surfaces.
