Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a high molecular weight polymer, one of the most versatile plastic materials known and useful for a large range of products for applications excluded to other materials.
The most outstanding characteristics are:
- high heat resistance
- high resistance to chemical agents and solvents
- high anti adhesiveness
- high dielectric properties
- low friction coefficient
PTFE is generally considered a thermoplastic polymer; at 327°C it maintains a very high viscosity, thus requiring particular transformation techniques for manufacturing of finished and semi-finished goods. PTFE can be employed at any temperature from -260°C to +260°C.
PTFE is available in most forms from Electrical sleeving,tubing,rod,plate,sheet,non adhesive and self adhesive tape.Cut pieces available on many items upon request. Please ring on 01707 325513 and ask for stock shapes sales.
