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).
• 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
• PTFE tubing
• Cleanroom PTFE tubing
• Special PTFE profiles
• PTFE Monofilament/rod
• PTFE Spirals
• Filled: glass, carbon, graphite, pigment
• Etched PTFE
• PTFE Paste
• PTFE Spray
• PTFE welding liners
• PTFE sheet
• PTFE film/foil
• PTFE rod
• PTFE pipe
• Coating with PTFE
PTFE is often used in the Medical industry, Aerospace, Oil&Gas/Petrochemical, Semi-conductor, Packing&Food industry and other demanding industries.
