TECAPET TF is a PET (polyethylene terephthalate) polyester with the addition of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) solid lubricant to further improve base PET performance characteristics. With a lower coefficient of friction, TECAPET TF is the ideal engineering plastic material for applications requiring the amazing properties of standard PET but with improved wear and sliding attributes.
6mm to 160mm OD
8mm to 100mm Thick
Yes, however some sizes have minimum order quantity
TECAPET TF is used widely within the mechanical engineering, food technology, electronics and automotive sectors. With its high abrasion resistance, excellent sliding properties, strength & low moisture absorption, it is the material of choice for many engineers.
Just like our TECAPET PET standard material, TECAPET TF (PET + PTFE) is food contact approved and has both FDA & EU 10/2011 compliance. TECAPET TF is widely used in the food processing & food technology sectors within New Zealand as an un-lubricated bearing material.
The perfect material for mating soft steels and plastic surfaces. Often used for sliding applications such as slide ways, bearings with high load, un-lubricated parts, gears & thrust washers. TECAPET TF can outperform oil filled nylons and lubricated Acetal POM materials in certain applications.
