PTFE – a wide variety of attributes means appreciable flexibility
Among the many advantages of PTFE the fact is that you can’t burn or melt it. Moreover, by mixing different additives in with virgin PTFE, Acoplastic accommodates a wide range of requirements including minimal friction, UV resistance, self-lubricating attributes and extra-long durability. Irrespective of the degree of difficulty, Acoplastic can improve your existing PTFE solution and put together precisely the attributes you need.
