PTFE Cord

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
UNICORD is a white non-adhesive cord produced from 100% pure Polytetraflourethylen (PTFE).

USE:
UNICORD is ideal for packing in packing boxes, flanged joints and very large thread diameters on systems with heatin, potabel water and air.
UNICORD is also very suitablen for sealings in systems for ventilation, pressurized air or eg. systems with chemicals.

TECNICAL PROPERTIES:
UNICORD (Diameter 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 mm) FD.
(density: 1.5 g/cm3). Ideal for packing in tins, flanged joints and very large thread diameters. Recommended temperature range from -200°C to +260°C. Max. pressure: 60 bar. The exceptional strength and high molecular weight of the carbon fibre-fluorine compound provides PTFE-cords of outstanding qualities. Temperature range from -200°C to +260°C. UNICORD is resistant to almost all types of acids, bases, solvents, chemicals etc., however, with the exception of fluorine, some fluoride chemicals and melted alkali metals. Very low coefficient of friction. Non-inflammable (ASTM D-635 og D-470). Non-ageing. High tensile strength even at low temperatures. Breaking-down resistant, especially, in connection with bending and vibrations. Sound electric insulating power independent of frequency and temperature.

APPLICATION:
Unicord is cut in a suitable length for the flange or packing where it is to be placed.
It is essential that the dimension and length is right (especially when packing boxes).
At some packing boxes the Unicord shall be cut with an angle to ensure that the ends create a tight seal when the box is assembled.
Packing flanges the Unicord must go all the way round, and have the ends crossed, to ensure a tight seal when assembling.
