Lite Materials at a glance:
  • Lite Materials are designed to cover a wide range of lubricated hydrogen, hydrocarbon and natural gas applications from low to medium pressure.
  • The special product configuration provides stable sealing and wear performance while taking friction thermodynamics into account.
  • Lite Materials offer reduced product complexity due to their standardized product configuration, resulting in reduced lead time and optimized inventory management.
Overview of the individual Lite Materials grades

HY22 is a high performance carbon and graphite filled PTFE. It produces the lowest wear rate in the range of medium to high filled grades. This premium grade provides enhanced performance in both lubricated and non-lubricated environments where conventional PTFE materials fail by extrusion. Low thermal expansion and good creep characteristics make it the first choice for low pressure air and hydrocarbon compressor duties.

Suitable applications: Air, industrial gases, natural gas, refinery, olefins, alcohols, chemicals, refrigeration
