Self-Lubricating

Not just a coating, but solid PTFE, used in the sleeve or rotor of the valve has natural, self lubricating properties and a low coefficient of friction. Therefore, there is no need for oil or grease. PTFE has lower friction than any other solid material including graphite and molybdenum disulfide, and its lubricity results in smoother movement and operation of the valve.

Wear Resistance

In operation, thin films of PTFE are transferred from the rotor to the mating surface (or vice versa) in the body of the valve until it is coated with PTFE. Thus, the condition becomes one of PTFE sliding against PTFE. After the initial break-in period, this produces a surface with extremely low wear and eliminates fretting and galling.

Chemical Resistance

Valves are completely resistant to nearly all chemicals, gases, and solvents, such as strong caustics, sulfuric and hydrofluoric acids, aqua regia, and solvents, such as aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, esters, ketones, and ethers up to their boiling points.
