General facts


Shortening: PTFE+Mica

Color: White

Common uses: Electrical applications in aircraft, robots, electrical machines, gaskets, pipes, filters, self-lubricating bearings, coating in pans, foil, surface coating in chemical equipment, electrical insulation material, etc.


The benefits of PTFE+Mica applications

  • High chemical resistance.
  • Not attacked by acids, bases, and most organic solvents.
  • Withstands up to + 260 ° C continuously.
  • Tough at low temperatures down to -160 ° C.
  • Lowest friction of all plastics.
  • Not degraded by UV radiation.
  • Not attacked by microorganisms.
  • Good electrical and dielectric properties.
  • Very low water absorption.


The restrictions of fluorescent 207

  • High melt viscosity makes the material difficult to work with.
  • Poor creep resistance.
  • High density relative to other plastics.
  • Attacked by molten alkali metals, fluorine gas, oxygen difluoride, and chlorine trifluoride (except PTFE).
  • Low abrasion resistance.
  • Limited load capacity.

Fluorescent 207 – Specific properties

Fluorescent 207 plastic has unmatched dimensional stability and excellent creep resistance. This plastic is non-permeable in steam and its relative wear rate makes it an excellent choice for aggressive service bearings and bushings. The PTFE+Mica plastic is most commonly used in such things as:

  • Electrical applications in aircraft
  • robots, electrical machines
  • gaskets
  • pipes
  • filters
  • self-lubricating bearings
  • coating in pans
  • foil
  • surface coating in chemical equipment
  • electrical insulation material.

The material complies with FDA Directive 21 CFR 175,300, ie the raw materials are approved in contact with food. However, European standards are not met.
