Polytetraflouroethylene (PTFE) is one of the most popular materials for making seals and gaskets. It is a fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene comprising fluorine and carbon. Glass-filled PTFE is a variant of PTFE filled with glass-reinforced fibers. This reinforcement percentage may vary between 5% and 40%. The glass-filled variants have gained immense popularity in recent years due to their improved wear and compression properties. PTFE glass-molly 15/5 is one of the most popular types of glass-filled PTFE used for creating various sealing solutions. It is basically a glass-filled PTFE with molybdenum disulfide (MOS2) and glass fibers.
SSP Seals provides PTFE glass-molly 15/5 sealing solutions that are widely used across industries in applications where they may be exposed to challenging environments such as extreme temperatures, pressures, and so on. Glass filling in PTFE adds to its strength and increases shelf life. The seals made of PTFE glass-molly 15/5 are abrasive and are not recommended to use on low hard value shafts.
Our experts have been helping clients to take advantage of this material for various sealing applications. All these years, we have designed and delivered several sealing solutions in custom specifications using this material.
