PTFE 15% CARBON FIBER-FILLED
B.I.R.S. Machine & Supply is a distributor of PTFE Carbon Fiber-Filled sheet, rod & tube.
Carbon Fiber lowers creep, increases flex and compressive modulus. PTFE Carbon fiber-filled raises hardness properties and exhibits wear characteristics in water applications. PTFE Carbon fiber-filled often is the best choice in automotive applications such as shock absorbers and water pumps. It is an excellent material for use in piston rings, bearings and thrust washers to reduce wear. A 15% fill is typically called out in certain AMS specifications, however customer specific fill percentages are available upon request.
**Carbon fiber adds improved compression and wear resistance to PTFE. In general less carbon fiber filler is needed than glass fiber to produce the same effect. Carbon fiber has excellent chemical resistance.
Lower deformation under load
Higher compressive and flex modulus
Increased material hardness
Chemically inert can be used in strong alkali and in HF, where glass reinforced compounds fail
Good wear and rubbing/sliding characteristics in dry and water applications
CARBON FIBER FILLER PERCENTAGE
5% Carbon Fiber 95% PTFE
10% Carbon Fiber 90% PTFE
15% Carbon Fiber 85% PTFE
