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.
