With more than 40 years of experience and continuous innovation, Polyfluor has become the PTFE specialist in the world. These products require specialized machinery and processes, may emit harmful chemicals when heated, and can persist in the environment for a long time. Our unparalleled solutions solve all challenges.

What is PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene)?

PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is a synthetic polymer with high resistance to heat, chemicals, and wear. Furthermore PTFE is hydrophobic and has a very low coefficient of friction.

Unprecedented Material Properties

Polyfluor offers products that are UV-resistant, do not age, are not flammable due to their flame-retardant effect, and are not hygroscopic with a water absorption of only 0.01%. Though some fluoropolymers are melt-processable, PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is not. As a result, standard PTFE is not suitable for injection-moulding, blow-moulding or vacuum-forming (unlike Moldflon, for example). Additionally, PTFE has the following properties:

  • Chemically inert
  • 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%)
  • Low dielectric constant (insulating)
