Avalon® Fluoropolymers

Greene Tweed initially developed the Avalon® family of materials for use in aerospace applications and through technology transfer, these leading edge materials are used in a variety of industries including semiconductor, oil & gas, and life sciences.

Avalon® fluoropolymers provide superior low friction for seal types including MSE®s, back-up rings for the G-T® ring, V-rings for V-packings, and valve seats. Base fluoropolymers provide excellent lubricity and sealing characteristics while fillers provide enhanced creep resistance, increased high-temperature capabilities, and outstanding wear characteristics. Avalon® is suitable for a variety of applications, including those requiring nonabrasive contact surfaces, high-temperature wear resistance, low deformation under load, good chemical resistance, and high-surface speeds.
