Carbon filled PTFE sheet provides improved dimensional stability and lower coefficient of thermal expansion in comparison to standard grades of PTFE. It is highly resistant to chemicals, offers good compression strength and is classified as partially electrically conductive and anti-static. 25% carbon filled PTFE offers enhanced resistance to creep, deformation and wear in comparison to the Virgin alternative, but the materials mechanical strength is still fairly limited when compared to other engineering plastics such as polyethylene. In comparison to glass filled PTFE, the material provides lower deformation under load and offers enhanced kinetic coefficient of friction.
The polymer is commonly used in high speed applications when dissipation of electric charge and low co-efficient of friction is required. Carbon filled PTFE sheet is commonly machined into shaft bearings, gaskets, shaft seals, pump components and parts used in electronic applications. At PAR Group, we have the capability to machine PTFE into bespoke requirements from drawings or existing samples utilising in-house CNC machinery.
