Trelleborg Sealing Solutions” offers two sealing compounds that are listed by NSF International as conforming to the requirements of “NSF/ANSI Standard 51 – Food Equipment Materials.” The company”s Turcon MF5 compound has recently achieved this status, joining Turcon MF6 in the listing. Turcon MF5 and MF6 are part of the Turcon MF range of materials specifically engineered for demanding processing environments, including food and beverage production. Based on ultra-clean technology, these proprietary compounds are manufactured from high-purity PTFE grades and additives. Their smooth finish, with high gloss and low porosity, avoids the risk of contamination buildup and reduces particle shedding. Each batch of MF material is manufactured using high-purity material only and can be issued with a certificate of conformity.

Turcon MF materials feature:

  • Operating temperatures from -200 C /-328 F to +260 C /500 F
  • Almost universal chemical compatibility
  • Outstanding low long-term compression set characteristics
  • Good friction and sliding properties
  • Specially suitable for rotary applications
  • High wear resistance
  • Minimal creep and permeation
  • A surface finish that minimizes contamination risk
  • Performance in a broad range of chemical media including organic and inorganic oxides, acids, alkalis, amines, esters and steam
  • Compliance to FDA 21 CFR177.1550
  • NSF/ANSI Standard 51
