PTFE - Polytetrafluoroethylene

This material is used frequently as a bearing or non-stick surface. Excellent choice for caustic fluid handling valves and fitting.

Massive size range in molded rod, tubular bar and plate. PTFE is also known as: Fluon, Diakin, Flouroplastic, Fluoropolymer, Neoflon, Polyfon, Chemfluor, and more.

PTFE sheets, rods, strip, slab, block and tubes are normal stock items.

Basics

Why you should use PTFE (Fluoropolymers):

  • Very slippery and non-stick
  • Wear resistance
  • 500 degrees F continuous use temperature
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Very easy to machine and fabricate
  • PTFE Rod available from .125″ -6″ as standard
  • Larger sizes are molded per order
  • PTFE Sheet – Film from .005″ – 3″ thickness
  • PTFE Molded Tubing- Vast sizes are available – made to order

This material is excellent wear resistant, heat resistant and non-stick. PFTE is a thermoplastic polymer, which is a white solid at room temperature, and a density of  2.2g/cm3. Material has extremely good chemical resistance. Retains properties over a large range of temperatures, -100 degrees F to 400 degrees F.

  • Chemically resistant to most chemicals and caustic/ acidic cleaning agents
  • Offers excellent strength, rigidity and machinability
  • Excellent electrical and thermal insulation
  • Available in a wide range of grades and fillers
Applications

Frequently used in:

  • Seals, gaskets and stem valves
  • Wear and slide machined parts
  • Chemical resistant fixtures
  • Pump parts and manifolds- from PTFE Rod
  • Scientific aircraft and electronic parts
  • Steam and high temp seals – from PTFE sheet
