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.
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.
