Made from 100% ePTFE
Low shrinkage at elevated temperatures
High tenacity at room and elevated temperatures
Generally chemically inert
GORE® RASTEX® Fibers S010T1 offers up to 20% material savings due to higher yield/kg compared to competitive thread
Can replace many high performance, high temperature threads to simplify inventory and logistics
Reduces change-out time and labor
Minimizes machine adjustments
Reduces potential for production errors
Does not degrade in chemicals, high temperatures or moist environments
Filter bags, cartridges, and other sewn filter media are exposed to extreme temperatures chemicals, abrasives, and, occasionally, moist environments, for extended periods. These conditions degrade the filter media and thread, and the thread often gives out first. In some cases the thread is not appropriate for the application, or it simply wears out from chemical, temperature, or abrasive attack before the filter media.
