PTFE GF25

PTFE GF25 is a PTFE with added glass fibre (25%). Because of the additive, it has greater mechanical strength than pure PTFE. It also has higher load resistance than the pure PTFE material, making it suitable for bearings and sliding applications. We deliver PTFE GF25 as plastic sheets, rods, foils and hollow rods.
