General Description:  

General Description : Filling PTFE with glass makes it stiffer and somewhat harder but lowers its tensile strength and impact resistance. It also improves the creep resistance, dimensional stability and wear.

Applications include wear pads, piston rings and rotating platforms in microwave ovens.
