4 Benefits of Choosing High-Temperature Thermoplastics as Metal Replacements

High-temperature thermoplastic materials are a suitable replacement for metal parts in many specialized manufacturing applications. An example includes our Symmtamide T-230 – a high-performance Poly-Amide-Imide (PAI) compound, 30% glass fiber reinforced to surpass the durability of many metals. These engineering polymers have been meticulously developed and refined to exhibit the high strength and reliability of […]

What Are the Advantages of Mica-Filled PTFE vs. Aluminum in Turbocompressor Seals?

Turbocompressor seals are a high-heat, high-wear application that demands an optimized PTFE solution. For that reason, filler materials are added to enhance PTFE’s mechanical properties. The addition of PTFE fillers such as synthetic Mica enables manufacturers like Symmtek to engineer specific physical, mechanical and thermal properties within the resulting fluorocomposite. As an example, we can […]
