 Material Blends

TexPoly converts high performance polymer materials into seal and wear products
resolving customer application service condition requirements. Materials utilized for
customer applications take into account the processing methods, types of fillers,
modifier content, molecular weight, etc. used for polymer material selection relative
to application requirements. In-house quality inspection, material conformance
specifications and certifications are documented and referenced per Quality
Assurance Manual as well as customer requirements.

Conventional TexPoly materials utilized for seal and wear products:

PTFE and / or Modified PTFE

  • 100% (Unfilled) PTFE
  • Glass Fiber Filled PTFE
  • Glass Fiber / Molybdenum Disulfide Filled PTFE
  • Carbon Powder / Graphite Filled PTFE
  • Carbon Fiber Filled PTFE
  • Ekonol Filled PTFE
  • Polyimde Filled PTFE
  • High Performance Polymer Filled PTFE
  • Bronze Filled PTFE

 

Note, various custom blends and pigments are available. Compression mold, Isostatic
molded and extrusion fluoropolymer processes are accounted for regarding application
conditions and costs. These processing conditions are specifically indicated within the
TexPoly material code designations.
