Rulon® is the trade name for a family of proprietary PTFE fluoropolymer compounds and other inert ingredients. This family of materials offers the combination of high compressive strengths, low coefficient of friction, and excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance while running without lubrication.

Rulon® is able to withstand temperature extremes of -400°F to over 500°F with and without additional lubricants, ideal In bearing and seal applications. Rulon® products are unique in that they do not cause stick-slip, or erratic low-speed motion. They also withstand a variety of harsh environments such as extreme dryness, cryogenic temperatures, water, steam, and hydrocarbon fuel. Rulon® products primarily are used for mechanical, electrical and chemical applications.

The following are some of the formulations available for Rulon®. Please contact an Emco Industrial Plastics representative to help you choose the correct material to meet your application needs.
