PTFE polytetrafluoroethylene

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, flame resistant & chemically inert to most substances.​ Can have fillers added 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 resistance & electrical resistance
  • Extremely low coefficient of friction & anti-stick
  • High temperature resistance & low moisture absorption

Features

Food Grade

Most grades of PTFE 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 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.

Applications

Valves, Seals, Bearings, Bushes, Rings, Pump Components, High Temperature Applications, Sliding Applications in Chemical Environments, Food & Pharmaceutical Industries.
