PTFE Properties

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Antistick Properties
  • Non-flammable
  • Excellent dielectric propertie
    (independent of both frequency and temperature)
  • Good mechanical properties (excellent fatigue
    resistance, especially in applications
    involving flexing or vibrations)
  • Excellent tensile strength
    even at low temperature
  • Non-aging properties
  • Moisture and U.V. resistance
  • Non-toxic

Product Description

The exceptional strength of the carbon-fluorine bond and a high molecular weight give PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a set of outstanding properties. Such properties include wide temperature use range of -180°C to +250°C. PTFE is resistant to virtually all corrosive chemicals and is suitable for almost all chemicals with the exception of fluorine, some fluorochemicals and molten alkali metals. The material is also recognised as remarkable in its resistance to flame. It is classified as a non-flammable material in air.
