PTFE for Greases and Lubricants

Natural Prime PTFE

Fluoro GE

Fluoro GE sub-micron PTFE are powders made from emulsion grade Natural Prime PTFE. These products cover a range of molecular weights to determine dispersability, thickening and performance properties. Due to the small particle size, the GE products have a larger specific surface area when compared to other PTFE.

Product Mean Particle Size (µm) Cone Penetration 4 Ball Wear Scar Bulk Density
Method ISO 13320 ASTM D217 ASTM D2266 ASTM D4894
Fluoro GE 100 < 1 µm 250-270 1/10mm 0.55-0.65 200-400 g/l
Fluoro GE 125 < 1 µm 255-275 1/10mm 0.40-0.50 200-350 g/l
Fluoro GE 150 < 1 µm 260-280 1/10mm 0.30-0.40 200-400 g/l

Fluoro GS

Fluoro GS powders are made from unsintered, suspension grade Natural Prime PTFE. These products are characterized by the uniform, crystalline structure of PTFE provide increased slip and abrasion properties.

Fluoro GS 100 ~ 4 µm 380-420 1/10mm 300-400 g/l
Fluoro GS 115 4-6 µm 2.15 g/cm³ 300-330 1/10mm 0.55-0.65
Fluoro GS 125 10-12 µm 2.15 g/cm³ 330-370 1/10mm 0.55-0.65

Recycled PTFE

Fluoro GT

Fluoro GT PTFE micro powders are made from highly crystalline, sintered PTFE. These products can be added with minimal to no change to the viscosity of the system. They impart excellent lubricity and wear resistance.

Product Mean Particle Size (µm) Cone Penetration Bulk Density
Method ISO 13320 ASTM D217 ASTM D4894
Fluoro GT 105 ~ 5 µm 400-475 1/10mm 400-700 g/l
Fluoro GT 130 25-35 µm >475 1/10mm 450-650 g/l
