Benefits

Our new PTFE material is a fit-for-purpose solution designed for dynamic sealing applications, offering many benefits of use such as:

  • Improved wear resistance
  • Improved heat transfer
  • Increase in mechanical strength
  • Improved extrusion resistance
  • Reduced friction
  • Increase in thermal conductivity

Characteristics and Special Features of Armorlene® PTFE Materials

Our PTFE material is enhanced by our deep technical and testing expertise, which enables us to engineer unique, custom sealing solutions. Glass, bronze, graphite, and nickel fillers are used to provide an even wider range of performance characteristics.

The Hallite PTFE material and product portfolio is a fit for-purpose solution designed for dynamic and static sealing applications, where high speeds up to 15 m/s (50 ft/s), low friction, temperatures ranging from -200 to 260°C (-328 to 500°F), strong wear performance, broad fluid compatibility and high pressure capabilities up to 600 bar (8700 psi) are required.

While maintaining its inherent properties and characteristics in material compounds, PTFE can benefit from the improved mechanical strength, stability and wear resistance provided by the additive. Hallite uses various fillers to optimize PTFE characteristics such as glass, carbon, graphite, MoS2, bronze and mineral.
