About This Solution

Consisting of a family of proprietary materials that are composed primarily of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) based resins, the different grades of this high-performance polymer material have been specifically formulated to meet the needs of challenging applications and the different applicable certifications. For example, some grades were designed to be USDA, USP, and/or FDA compliant and therefore well suited for life science equipment such as harmonic scalpels or chemical analyzers. Other grades have been designed specifically for the energy industry and for NORSOK M-710 and API 6A certification standards relating to sour gas service, cryogenic temperatures and low fugitive emission international standards ISO 15848 and Shell MESC SPE 77-312.

You may know this material from its use in the jacket of Omniseal® polymer, spring-energized seals, providing excellent chemical resistance and physical, thermal and tribological properties. 

In general, this high-performance polymer material is used when low wear and friction are needed. It has broad chemical compatibility, and depending on the application, could include PTFE and PTFE blends, fluoropolymers, PEEK, and UHMW-PE. Each grade is highly diverse and suitable for meeting the needs of extreme conditions and environments.
