About P.T.F.E.

About PTFE

PTFE stands for Poly Tetra Fluoro Ethylene.

PTFE is a thermoplastic member of the fluoropolymer family of plastics. Since it was discovered nearly 75 years ago, new industrial applications of PTFE are found every day. Thanks to its outstanding physical properties.

Properties

  • One of the most thermally stable plastic materials, functions up to 260° C.
  • Resistance to virtually all corrosive material
  • Very low co-efficient of friction
  • Non-stick, Non-flammable, Non-toxic
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Excellent tensile strength even at low temperatures
  • Moisture and U. V. resistance
  • Virgin PTFE is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in food, beverage, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries
  • PTFE has relatively poor resistance to gamma radiation

PTFE Filled Compounds

PTFE Compounds: Various fillers can be blended with the PTFE base resin to enhance certain properties e.g. glass fiber, carbon, graphite, molybdenum disulfide, bronze, etc.

A proper combination of inorganic and metallic fillers will further enhance the factors like creep resistance, wear resistance, thermal conductivity, arc resistance, dimensional stability & hardness.

Where parts need to retain a degree of elasticity, the compound used will generally be low on filler. Whenever there is a problem of friction under load, a high filler content should be used.

For specific applications, other grades can be processed upon request.
