Carbon Fiber Filled PTFE Rod

¡¾ Carbon Fiber Filled PTFE Rod ¡¿

Carbon filled PTFE is primarily used in applications where higher thermal or electrical conductivity is required, over and above conventional PTFE. This grade also exhibits improved wear life and has very good compression properties, for loading applications. Carbon filled PTFE has good abrasion resistance, load bearing, wear and frictional properties under sliding conditions, ranging from dry to fully lubricated systems. Our grade of carbon shows 10% better wear life over conventional carbon grades.


Carbon filled PTFE is used in dynamic applications at high speed, as the thermal conductivity decreases the wear of the material resulting from heat buildup. Examples of these applications are: seal rings, piston rings and compressor rings. The good loading properties enable the use of carbon filled PTFE in higher load gasketing applications. Carbon is one of the best fillers to use in water applications.
