PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), commonly known as Teflon, has a unique combination of properties that make it an ideal material choice for a variety of applications. PTFE is chemically inert, weatherable, has excellent electrical insulation properties, high temperature resistance, low coefficient of friction and non-sticking properties.

Features and Benefits of PTFE

The high temperature rating of PTFE at 500° F and its excellent chemical resistance make it an ideal choice for a variety of applications. Although its mechanical properties are low in comparison to other engineered thermoplastics the addition of additives can greatly improve them.

Virgin grade PTFE is FDA approved and as a result can be used in high temperature areas in the food processing and service industry as insulators and bearings.

The low coefficient of friction makes PTFE an excellent choice for bearing, bushing and other wear applications.
