PTFE Back up
PTFE Back ups are designed to overcome the problems of 'O'-Ring extrusion when the system pressures are greater than the sealing capabilities of an unsupported 'O'-Ring. The use of P.T.F.E. for anti-extrusion rings has many advantages over 'hard rubber' materials, particularly at high system pressures. The cold flow characteristics of PTFE are used to full advantage in reducing the extrusion gaps to a minimum and allowing automatic compensation for wear. The capability of specialist compounding to suit extremes of duty combined with a high resistance to virtually all chemicals, low friction and wear rates render PTFE as the ideal material for anti-extrusion devices.
