Arlon® 1260 is a carbon-fiber reinforced version of Arlon 1000 featuring the highest modulus and tensile strength of all the Arlon grades. Designers requiring a low coefficient of thermal expansion often select Arlon 1260.
Arlon 1260 also provides enhanced tribological properties, reduced friction values and improved wear properties over Arlon 1000. Arlon 1260 is ideal in lubricated bearings and/or moist environments.
Arlon 1260 is available in custom injection-molded shapes, rods to .625 in. (1.6 cm), tubes from .5 in. (1.3 cm) ID to 6 in. (15.2 cm) OD and discs to 15 in. (38 cm).
Note: Arlon 1260 is subject to some limitations regarding moldings. Arlon 1260 is not recommended for shapes with a cross-section greater than .625 in. (1.6 cm).
