PTFE Modified

Acoflon® M100

PTFE modified you will find in our Compound Acoflon® M100. It is PTFE with a small amount of PPVE (Perfluoropropylvinylether) added, which creates a narrower polymeric structure without altering the high chemical resistance of PTFE.

The main benefits of PTFE modified are:

  • Low cold flow.
  • Low permeability
  • Enhanced mechanical properties

The dense structure reduces the permeability of the material and generally increases the mechanical properties. Compared to Virgin PTFE, the cold flow of the material is reduced to the half, and it is easier to obtain a smooth surface on machined components.

These properties make the material attractive for the manufacture of:

  • Pharmaceutical components
  • Food components
  • Belts and diaphragms
