Fluorosint® 207 from Modern Plastics is a proprietary mixture in which synthetically manufactured mica is chemically linked to PolyTetraFluoroEthylene (PTFE). This bonding results in properties not normally attainable in reinforced PTFE. Fluorosint® grades offer an excellent combination of low frictional properties and dimensional stability.
Fluorosint® offers excellent chemical resistance and continuous use temperature of 500°F (260 °C). Compared with PTFE, it has higher load carrying capability, 1/9 of the deformation under load, and a lower coefficient of thermal expansion.

- Chemical resistance parallels PTFE
- Continuous use temperatures to 500°F (260°C)
- Compared to PTFE:
- higher load carrying capability
- 1/9 of the deformation under load
- lower coefficient of thermal expansion
Fluorosint® 207's unmatched dimensional stability, excellent creep resistance and white color uniquely position this material to serve FDA regulated applications. It is non-permeable in steam and meets the requirements of the directives of the European Union and the American FDA regulations concerning plastic materials intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. In combination with the good mechanical performance of Fluorosint® and its inherent outstanding chemical and hydrolysis resistance, this feature opens numerous application possibilities in food, pharmaceutical and medical industries.
Fluorosint®'s relative wear rate is 1/20 the rate of PTFE below 300°F (150°C) making it an excellent choice for aggressive service bearings and bushings.
