Rockwell B 76White
18

Fiberglass and Molybdenum Disulfide filled PTFE, Used in static and dynamic pressurized applications for superior seal life.

Rockwell C 41Gray Black
07

Proprietary FDA APPROVED filled PTFE, Approved for dairy contact, offers superior wear characteristics that exceed other materials. Used in dynamic food and drug processing applications.

Rockwell B 76Black
15

Fiberglass filled PTFE, has added strength for applications with high temperature and pressure combinations. Also used in high pressure applications for its extrusion resistance.

Rockwell C 41Off White
09

Carbon-Graphite filled PTFE, used in sealing abrasive media such as dust, sand, or water. Excellent for harsh atmospheric conditions, can be used on soft mating materials.

Rockwell B 76Black
10

Polymide filled PTFE, offers low wear and superior low friction properties, kind to softer mating surfaces, excellent for dynamic non-lubricated applications.

Rockwell B 76Gold
05

Proprietary filled PTFE, offers low wear and exceptional thermal stability. Used in larger diameters where bore retention is critical. Should be considered for reciprocating and slow rotary movement.
