PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene)

PTFE is often required for critical applications in which a.o. high temperatures, chemical resistance, low friction are important. The main difference in the fluoropolymers is that PTFE is not melt-processable while all other fluoropolymers are. Standard PTFE is not suitable for injection molding, blow molding or vacuum forming (though Moldflon is).

Key properties

• Excellent chemical resistance
• Working temperature -190°C to +260°C
• Greatest resistance to fatigue (Wöhler curve)
• FDA approved
• Flame resistant - UL94V0
• Antistick properties
• Low co-efficient of friction
• UV-resistant (does not age)
• Not hygroscopic (water absorption < 0,01%)
• Very good dielectric dielectric insulation properties
