New Process Fibre PTFE Washers and Spacers are strong candidates for your wear resistant fastener applications because they have excellent chemical and thermal properties. PTFE Washers and Spacers exhibit:
· Excellent dielectric properties
· Good dimensional stability
· High compressibility, high creep resistance, and low thermal conductivity
· High melt temperature
· Inert to most chemicals
· Low abrasion and wear resistance
Because New Process PTFE Washers are non-reactive, there are no corrosion byproducts to contaminate processes. PTFE is extremely pure, and it resists sorption of chemicals.
Our PTFE components provide smooth non-wetting hydrophobic surfaces that resist biofilm buildup, and can be used with the strongest cleaning solutions and steam-in-place processes. Surfaces of PTFE are easy to clean, and because they resist buildup of process materials, it may be possible to extend intervals between cleanings.
