ZEDEX® 530 family

Super PTFE compound – up to 240 °C

ZX-530® is a smart avarage between PTFE and ceramic. It has neither the fragility of the ceramic nor the strong creep of PTFE. Wear resistance and elasticity are respectively many times higher than that of PTFE and the one of ceramic.

The chemical resistance, instead, is at the PTFE level. The modification ZX-530CD3® has the better wear resistance of the ZEDEX® materials at 60°C. ZX-530® has 2 to 3 times better desorption values than PEEK.

When to use the family ZX-530® ?

  • When in contact with chemicals
  • When low water absorption is required
  • If FDA conformity or EU 10/2011 approval is required
    (basic type ZX-530®)

When is the ZX-530® family not suitable?

  • For visible parts (colored special types possible, e.g. ZX-530® black as alternative)
  • For applications with very strongly abrasive particles
    (e.g. the family ZX-324® as alternative)

What can be replaced?
