Coats Glasmo PTFE has been developed for the manufacture of demanding filtration applications.

It is a temperature resistant fibre glass sewing thread with exceptional thermal stability that can perform in temperatures up to 593ºC. Fibre glass material does not burn, and E glass variety is used for spark plugs, thermo couples and ROHS compliant colour coded insulation wire assemblies.

The additional PTFE coating gives the product excellent frictional properties which it does not naturally have or has been imparted by conventional lubricants. The product provides good resistance to acids, alkalis and oxidants.
