Quadrant’s Fluorosint 207 enhanced PTFE has replaced virgin PTFE in a filling valve/piston used in a baby food production facility.

Fluorosint eliminated inaccurate filling and leakage caused by the instability of the PTFE, which suffered from deflection at the 90C/200F+ operating temperatures.

The mica-filled Fluorosint 207 was chosen as a result of its low coefficient of friction and low coefficient of linear thermal expansion, thus improving the dimensional stability and sealing capability of this PTFE-based material.

Fluorosint 207’s combination of stability, excellent creep resistance and white colour serve applications where Food and Drug Administration (FDA) compliance is required.

It is non-permeable in steam and complies with the FDA’s 21 CFR 175.300 regulation.

Its relative wear rate is 1/20 the rate of PTFE below 300F (150C), making it suitable for aggressive service bearings, bushings and seals.

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products

Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products (QEPP) is the world’s leading manufacturer of semi-finished products made from general engineering and high-performance plastics. Quadrant also designs, develops and produces finished parts and solutions for a broad variety of applications in many different industries globally. Its product range extends from polyamide (PA), polyacetal (POM) and ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) to high-performance materials such as fluoroplastics and polybenzimidazole (PBI), which features temperature resistance to over 425C (800F) while maintaining total dimensional stability. The semi-finished products are machined or thermoformed and used in a variety of industries ranging from electronics through packaging machinery to chemical processing for applications where properties such as non-stick characteristics, abrasion resistance, dimensional stability, chemical and acid resistance or purity are extremely important.

Quadrant’s global teams of product development and applications engineers provide their customers with comprehensive advisory services. The best individual solution is sought for every customer requirement – from the choice of suitable material to optimum design of the finished product and machining of the most sophisticated materialsin state-of-the-art Technology Centres.
