The full production range can be processed with the following grades:
Virgin PTFE (standard and modified)
Filled PTFE (standard compounds)
High Performance PTFE based compounds (compounds developed for special applications)
Moreover sheets, skived sheets, tubes and rods can be, upon request, processed by the chemical etching technology of Guarniflon®, allowing the PTFE to be bonded to surfaces of various materials.
POROUS PTFE Porous PTFE grades are produced from suspension PTFE powders and specifically they are a mixture of different particle size distributions and hardness degrees to achieve the desired level of porosity.
HIGH PERFORMANCE FLUOROPOLYMER MATERIALS Beside the wide range of the existing PTFE products, GUARNIFLON® developed the TEKSLIDE® products, PTFE compounded grades used in the processing of tapes, bearing tapes and machined parts retaining the usual and well known conventional PTFE advantages improved.
HIGH PERFORMANCE SEALING SOLUTIONS Special rings for all hydraulic applications where the PTFE compounds are able to grant high wear resistance, low friction even without lubrication, perfect sealing at low, medium and high pressures.
Not only virgin PTFE, but mainly compounds with bronze, carbon glass fiber.
is a new patented Antibacterial product developed under the request for utilization in human spaceflight environment by the “Cleanliness & Bio Resources” department of Thales Alenia Space. It has been tested according ISO 22196:2007 “Plastics – Measurements of antibacterial activity on plastics surfaces”.
is a FDA approved blue PTFE detectable using optical scanner, metal detection equipment or X-ray equipment, whatever the type of food has been processed. This ensures that each fragment can be identified rapidly avoiding critical food contamination.
is a new patented stainless steel filled PTFE developed to overcome surface finish problems after CNC and mechanical machining of standard SS filled PTFE. Composed of a unique blend of PTFE and special SS 316L powder PTFE G673 defines new standard for PTFE compounds in terms of mechanical strength, toughness, elasticity, durability and surface finish.
AIR & GAS COMPRESSORS
Since 1982 Guarniflon is focused on the processing of PTFE resins into semi-finished and engineered parts, including high-performance PTFE compounds used in a large variety of industrial applications.
