PTFE attributes

Thanks to its versatile attributes, PTFE is an amazing material that opens the door to multiple customised attributes in a single solution. This versatile material is an economical and flexible solution to the production of critical machine parts.

New functions demand new attributes

Specially produced material attributes are required to enable critical machine parts to cope with completely new functions. PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) is a material that unites a variety of disparate attributes in a single solution. Drawing on expertise stretching back more than 50 years, Acoplastic has the capacity to manufacture PTFE units with special attributes to match any application.

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.
