PTFE can be mixed with a variety of materials to produce desired performance specifications. Glass fibre is the most commonly used filler, resulting in a lowered deformation under load at both high and low temperatures. Wear and friction behaviour is also improved.
Mouldings have a homogeneous and dense structure. The surface is smooth with a white to light grey appearance.
