Fluorolon PTFE 1034 is reinforced with carbon:graphite the percentage varying between 5 and 30%. The added fiber improves the wear properties, reduces extrusion. The coefficient of friction is slightly increased and for this reason, graphite is sometimes added to compensate this side effect. The material has the ability to run under dry or wet conditions making it an ideal bearing and seal material.
ALLOY 1034 is compatible with most fliuds, except Sorong axidizers and acids.
ALLOY 1034 is not FDA compliant.
The mechanical properties of ALLOY 1034 at ambient temperaturas are:
Tensile Strength ASTM D638 2500 psi (175 kg/cm2)
Elongation ASTM D638 240%
Service Temperature Range ( F)
-320 to 475
Advantages of PTFE
-Suitable for use in aqueous media
-Lower friction than G and PTFE in aqueos media.
