WHAT IS PTFE?

2020-04-15

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene.  

Being hydrophobic, non-wetting, high density and resistant to high temperatures, PTFE is an incredibly versatile material with a wide variety of applications, though it's perhaps best-known for its non-stick properties.

 

ADVANTAGES OF USING PTFE FILLED COMPOUNDS

  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Wide range of service temperature
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Non stick, low friction
  • No embrittlement or ageing
  • Smooth surface finish can be achieved
  • Non wetting
  • Outstanding corrosion protection
  • Electrical insulation
  • High thermal stability and flame resistance
  • Resistance to weathering
  • Food grade compliancy
