Unitrex® Lf20 PTFE Filled PEEK Offers Superior Performance

Unitrex® Lf20 PTFE Filled PEEK offers the performance of standard unfilled PEEK, with the addition of PTFE, resulting in a very lower coefficient of friction. For wear applications requiring both high heat resistance and resistance to many acidic and alkaline solutions, this material is an excellent choice.

With its unique combination of wear resistance, FDA compliance, UL94 V-0 flame rating and extremely low toxicity and smoke release, Unitrex Lf20 is suitable for use in a myriad of applications including aerospace, aircraft, oil & gas extraction and processing, semiconductor fabrication and many more.

Additionally, this material is increasingly being used to replace component parts made of metals due to its light weight, fabrication ease, insulating properties and design freedom, which allows for part consolidation in many applications.

Unitrex Lf20 PTFE Filled PEEK Features:
  • Very low coefficient of friction
  • High Continuous Use Temperature
  • FDA compliant
  • UL94 V-0 rated
  • Low toxicity and smoke release
  • Dimensionally stable
  • Highly resistant to alkaline and acidic solutions 
  • Easily machined and fabricated

  • Typical Applications:
  • Compressor seals
  • Valve components
  • Poppets
  • Pump components

    Fluorosint® HPV Wear Resistant, FDA-Compliant PTFE Bearing Material

    Fluorosint® HPV PTFE - Most Wear Resistant Fluorosint Grade - Outlasts Low-Tech PTFE Based Materials.

    Quadrant's FDA-compliant Fluorosint HPV is a mica-filled high-performance bearing grade that can deliver a pressure velocity (PV) performance improvement of more than 40 per cent over other PTFE materials according to in-house tests conducted by Quadrant. Parts made of Fluorosint HPV can withstand higher loads and velocities while delivering better wear resistance, enabling the part to last longer compared to existing FDA-compliant PTFE-based materials. The product was specially developed to meet the demands of high-performance bearing applications where other, low-technology PTFE formulations would exhibit premature wear or not perform adequately. These characteristics, together with FDA compliance for food and pharmaceutical applications, open up interesting new options for engineers and manufacturers. Simply put, parts machined from Fluorosint HPV last longer than those made from many of the alternative filled PTFE materials on the market today. Fluorosint HPV can replace bronze, steel and powdered metal parts and deliver performance gains in wear life and system performance. Typical applications include thrust washers, wear guides, seals and food processing and preparation equipment.

    FDA compliant Fluorosint HPV PTFE is a high performance bearing grade of Fluorosint - optimized for high PV and very low "K" or wear factor. Fluorosint HPV PTFE was developed for bearing applications where other, low-tech PTFE formulations exhibit premature wear or simply cannot perform. FDA compliance gives food and pharmaceutical equipment manufacturers new design options and all benefit from its excellent load bearing and wear characteristics.
    Features of Fluorosint® HPV PTFE:
  • Most Wear Resistant Fluorosint Grade - Outlasts Low-tech PTFE Based Materials

  • FDA compliant

  • Optimized for high PV and very low "K" or wear factor.

  • Developed for bearing applications where other low-tech PTFE formulations exhibit premature wear.

  • Typical applications include thrust washers, wear guides, seals and food processing and preparation equipment.

  • Professional Plastics supplies a full range of Fluorosint products through their 16 locations throughout the USA and Singapore.  Complete technical data and pricing is available online at:
