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.
