Description

PTFE (Polytetrafluouroethylene) is a semi-crystalline high performance thermoplastic. Offering excellent chemical resistance and sliding properties, PTFE finds many applications in seals, housings, linings and bearings.

PTFE also maintains very good UV resistance, hot water resistance and electrical insulation at higher temperatures.

There are several different modified PTFE materials available with unique properties. Many of these modified grades offer greatly reduced deformation percentages under load, as well as a lower coefficient of friction.
