Turcon MF5 and MF6 are specifically designed for use in demanding environments, such as in the food and beverage industries. Manufactured from high-purity PTFE grades and additives, the materials’ high-gloss and low-porosity smooth finish reduces particle shedding and the risk of contamination buildup.

Features of the Turcon MF materials include –328 to 500°F operating temperature; low long-term compression set characteristics; good friction and sliding properties; high wear resistance; minimal creep and permeation; and compatibility with most chemicals, including organic and inorganic oxides, acids, alkalis, amines, esters, and steam.
