PTFE features and attributes
The defining feature of PTFE is almost universal resistance to chemicals. Other eye-catching attributes include low adhesion and a low friction coefficient. The material is also an excellent electrical insulator, resistant to voltage corrosion to the effects of weather conditions (UV radiation), and able to withstand temperatures from -200°C to +260°C.
PTFE does not absorb water and is a poor heat conductor. Another advantage is extremely low tendency to burn, cf. the UL 94 flammability standard.
PTFE features a variety of versatile attributes in a single solution
By mixing additives such as glass, carbon, graphite, bronze and stainless steel in with the virgin PTFE, we can tailor the attributes to match specific production environments and industries.
With PTFE and high-tech plastic as our area of expertise, we have the capacity to analyse complex issues and develop customized PTFE compound for your application.
