The operating conditions of compressors are getting harsher due to their higher speed and increased efficiency, therefore interacting components are suffering from excessive wear and friction, and so heating, resulting in the failure of compressor devices. For this reason, constantly increasing interest has been placed on the use of High-Performance Polymers, thanks to their excellent properties.

Special formulations of F10PTFE and F10HPP, thanks to their self-lubricating properties can reduce friction and wearing between the mating surfaces in compressors, in case of lubrication or even absent lubrication, and they guarantee excellent heat dissipation.

Fluorten’s F10PTFE and F10HPP can be the right choice for specific customized parts, suitable for the application both in reciprocating and oil-free compressors.
