Flexxcel Fluoroplastic Materials

Fabric belt material selection is a critical factor in the successful design of each fabric expansion joint. A number of materials are widely accepted for use in fabric expansion joint applications. These materials fall into two general families—Fluoroplastics and Elastomers.

Chemical resistance, temperature limitations, abrasion resistance, tensile strength and susceptibility to flutter/vibration are major considerations when selecting a fabric material. Please review the following section for details regarding FLEXXCEL Fluoroplastic products.

Fluoroplastics (PTFE)

Fluoroplastics (PTFE)— The chemical resistance of this material is unequaled by other materials.
