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.

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.

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.
