A stack of PTFE Teflon® rods and sheets in various sizes, including black, white, and blue.

PTFE (Teflon®)

PTFE known as Teflon® (polytetrafluoroethylene) is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic having the lowest coefficient of friction of any plastic material with excellent release properties. Superior thermal & electrical insulating properties with high melting point, flame resistant & chemically inert to most substances.​ Filled PTFE available to alter the physical & mechanical properties. Available in rod, tube, sheet, skived films & self-adhesive tapes. Service temperatures from -200/+260°C, short term to +300°C.
Outstanding chemical, electrical & heat resistance
Extremely low coefficient of friction & anti-stick properties
Wide range of applications



4mm to 300mm OD


3.5mm ID to 300mm OD

Films & Sheet

0.025mm to 100mm Thick


White, Grey, Black, Blue

Modified Grades

Food Grade

Most grades of PTFE Teflon are suitable for food contact.  Optical blue & x-ray detectable PTFE grades also available. Food Certification documentation can be supplied  at time of order to align with your production batch (charges apply).

Additives & Modifiers

The physical & mechanical properties of PTFE Teflon can be altered to increase performance by adding glass, graphite, carbon, bronze or molybdenum disulphide. Glass for example will increase wear resistance, carbon improves abrasion properties.
