Everflon® PTFE Fine Powder F500 is soft, white polymers that are produced from PTFE aqueous dispersions. These fine powders possess the lowest coefficient of friction, the highest heat resis-tance, chemical resistance, electrical properties, and non-sticking properties of all fluoropolymers. It is uniquely capable of being sheared by lubricated paste extrusion into a coherent fibrous matrix with useful structural integrity.
Everflon® PTFE F500 is designed for processing at medium to high reduction ratios of 100:1 to 600:1. It is particularly suitable for production of high quality tubing, spaghetti tubing, and wire coating. This grade is also highly suitable for after-processing tech-nologies, such as flanging, welding, blow molding, and convolut-1ng.
It is mainly used for tubing installed in demanding applications. It includes high performance articles, such as reinforced hose requiring the ultimate in reliability and performance in chemical, pharmaceutical, and automotive industry in use with hydraulic fluid, hydrocarbon fuel, or reactive gas. Such applications are, for example, overbraided hoses for fuel assemblies and brake systems.
