Fluoro-Wear™, Fluoro-Stat™ & UHMW-PE Sheet

 

Fluoron has in inventory, static-dissipative sheet of Teflon® PTFE and UHMW-PE. The sheet is made with resin compounded with carbon which provides sufficient conductivity making it static-dissipative. Both of these sheet products are available either non-bondable, bondable one-side with epoxy adhesives, or pressure sensitive adhesive backing. Pressure Sensitive Sheet provides easier installation in many applications in wood rooms and wood yards of pulp mills such as lining chutes, hoppers, conveyor beds and cone bottom silos. Hold-down bolting is eliminated, resulting in substantial savings in time and material.

It has 1/7 (14%) that of UHMW-PE

UHMW PE is the toughest of all plastics. The abrasion resistance of this polymer is equally impressive. In tests where specimens are rotated at 1,750 rpm (revolutions per minute) for 8 hours in 50% sand slurry, UHMW PE exhibits 10 times the abrasion resistance of carbon steel. This is more than double that of 6/6 polyamide and polyurethane and 80 times that of hard neoprene rubber. It is 3 times more abrasion resistant than the toughest elastomer, polyurethane.
